Appendix 2: Freight Class
Eurostat road freight data is a compilation of data collected by the Member States. Each Member State reports the activities of its national fleet. The data are collected in samples which are taken on the basis of the national vehicle register. When reading this report, it should be borne in mind that whenever the report mentions hauliers of a specific Member State, what it actually refers to is the vehicles registered in that Member State.
Each country uses its own national surveys for the collection of data based on returns from road hauliers. The results are data referring to vehicles and their linked journeys, providing detailed information on transported goods. At the Eurostat level common aggregation procedures have been used and these may diverge from country practices.
Two non-EU states emerged as main trading partners, namely Russia and Turkey. Russia mainly traded with Poland, Lithuania and Finland, and Turkey with Bulgaria. These data have been excluded from the calculations.
Therefore differences might occur between Eurostat data and the figures in this report.
The units of transportation measurement utilized in the report describe the quantity and traffic of transportation used in transportation statistics. The Payload quantity is measured in tonne (t), a non-international system of unit but an accepted metric unit defined as 1.000 kilograms, while the Payload distance is measured in tonne-kilometre or tkm: 1 tkm = 1.000 kg per km. The US equivalent is the ton-mile: 1 ton-mile x (0.907185 t / short ton) x (1.609344 km / mile) = 1.460 tkm. All information is provided in Euros @ end of financial 2014 year rates.
