a) Progress with distance related charges for heavy duty vehicles on highways in selected countries between 1998 and 2001 and b) structure of total charges for heavy road freight transport in selected countries in 2001.
All prices are 2001 prices. Trends in non-Eurozone Member States (Denmark, Sweden and UK) may partly be explained by changes in exchange rates. The dotted line represents a "best case" (lowest) estimate for marginal external and infrastructure costs (MEC) of a 40-tonne Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV), derived from (Infras /IWW, 2000). See TERM 2002 25 - EU External costs of transport.
