Freightstat shows monthly and annual data on freight units (i.e., Accompanied and unaccompanied trailers and lorries) for the Short Sea, Western Channel and UK-Ireland (Northern, Central and Southern) routes. 

Data shows accompanied and unaccompanied trailers/trucks for UK Continent routes and total units for UK Ireland, plus quarterly and annual data from the Department for Transport.


  • Each month ferry operators are sent out a standard email requesting their data. Data is sent back to the publisher then entered into a master spreadsheet.
  • Depending on the ferry operator, the author is supplied with monthly data on total freight units and the number of sailings/crossings.
  • Data is also collected from Eurotunnel, Department for Transport and the Irish Statistics Office to present a rounded picture of the market.


  • Each month subscribers are sent a pdf report showing comparisons between the current market and the previous year. Comparisons are made on a year-to-date and latest month basis.
  • Subscribers also receive an associated spreadsheet showing the summary data that appears in the pdf report, plus monthly data for the past 2 to 3 years.


The report and spreadsheet are structured as follows:


  • Latest Trends
