Figures

Key assessment

EU-wide data on real passenger and freight transport prices are still lacking. However, data for some countries (e.g. UK and Denmark) show that passenger car transport has become cheaper relative to public transport than it was 20 years ago. In the Netherlands freight transport by all modes has become cheaper during recent decades. Trucking has gained market share because it has become much faster, and it remains a flexible mode for low quantities of freight.
