Freight transport volumes grow along with GDP
A positive value (green column) indicates decoupling (percentage decline in transport intensity since the previous year). The transport demand growth between 2003 and 2004 may partly be caused by a change in methodology, but no correction figure exists. No data available for Switzerland or Liechtenstein. GDP is in euro at constant 1995 prices. Freight transport (tonne-kilometre) includes transport by road, rail and inland waterways. Short-sea shipping and oil pipelines are excluded due to lack of data.
