Overview of transport statistics


© European Union

Transport is an important sector of the European Union (EU) economy and is also central to sustainable development. The main aspects of EU transport policy are laid down in the White Paper Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area and also form a large part of the Green Deal policy of the European Commission.

In order to design, implement and monitor these EU policies, there is a need for high quality statistics within the transport field – this is what you can find in the second chapter in the newly released publication Energy, transport and environment statistics.

In this chapter you will find information about freight and passenger transport as well as transport equipment and safety.

Here are a few examples of statistics you can find in this chapter:
