Type of transport

Road transport

From 2017, the data of the survey “Freight transport by road” will be used as input. Previous data on road freight transport have been collected from Estonian transport companies on the basis of a different methodology. The survey of road freight transport organized by Statistics Estonia provides an overview of goods transported and transport volumes of Estonian road freight vehicles. Road freight vehicles registered in the Traffic Register of the Road Administration which have a loading capacity of over 3,500 kg (categories N2 and N3) and which are not older than 25 years participate in the sample survey. The data of the last published period are forecasted, the specified data will be published when adding the data of the next period.

Railway transport

The quantity of total freight in tonnes may be double as in case of domestic freight the same quantity of freight may be carried to the destination by several railway enterprises if one of them carries the freight on the public railway and the other on non-public railway. That is the reason why it is recommended, in order to characterise the quantity of the freight carried, to use the indicator freight turnover which indicates the volume of work (in tonne-kilometres) made while carrying the freight.
