Poland has found itself among EU road transport leaders, the Central Statistical Office of Poland (GUS) reported.
According to GUS, in 2015 road freight transport in Poland in tonne-kilometres (tkm) accounted for 14.5 percent of the entire EU road freight. This places Poland second in the EU behind Germany and ahead of Spain and France, GUS said.
A tonne-kilometre, abbreviated as tkm, is a unit of measure of freight transport which represents the transport of one tonne of goods by a given transport mode (road, rail, air, sea, inland waterways, pipeline etc.) over a distance of one kilometre.
