Freight transport demand has grown fast, and has generally been coupled to the growth in GDP. Consequently the objective of decoupling GDP and transport growth is no closer. However, the apparently close link is not evident when looking at individual regions (e.g. old 15). The difference in transport intensity between the old and the new member states is great but decreasing.
