Press release: 12.362-202/20
Vienna, 2020-11-03 – As first results (flash estimates) by
Statistics Austria show, 110.4 million tonnes (t) of goods were transported
by road freight vehicles registered in Austria in the third quarter
of 2020. Thus, the transport volume
decreased by 1.2% compared to the third quarter of the previous year
(111.7 million t). A decline compared to the same period of the preceding
year was also registered in the number of laden
journeys (7.8 million laden journeys) by 6.4% while the total
transport performance on Austrian and foreign territory (6.9 billion
ton-kilometres (tkm)) remained quite stable with a growth by 0.4%.
The slight increase in transport performance is mainly
due to transports on Austrian territory. The transport
performance within Austria increased by 4.3% to 5.2 billion tkm
(3rd quarter 2019: 5.0 billion tkm), whereas outside
Austria it decreased by 9.9% to 1.7 billion tkm (3rd quarter 2019:
1.9 billion tkm).
