Methodological note

The indicator measures the share of rail and inland waterways in total inland freight transport, expressed in tonne-kilometres (tkm). Inland transport includes transports by road, rail and inland waterways. All data are based on movements on national territory; rail and inland waterway transport data are collected based on movements on national territory, regardless of the nationality of the train or vessel; road data are redistributed to the national territory on the basis of reported data on the activity of the vehicles registered in each country and modelling the likely journey itinerary by projecting it on the European road network. Neither sea nor air freight transport are currently represented in the indicator. For countries, where inland waterways statistical legislation does not apply the totals contain only the share of rail transport.

The Catalonia indicator only includes land transport.
