Freight transport in May of 2019


In May 2019 various carriers transported by rail over 19.6 million tonnes of goods, which means a decrease of 1.1 million tonnes (-5.3%) in comparison to May of 2018. The transport work amounted to nearly 4.7 billion tonne-kilometres (down by 5.8%), while the operational performance was at the level of almost 7 million train-kilometres (down by nearly 4.7%). The average transport distance was 238 km and was 2 km lower than in May of 2018.

Fewer goods were transported during the first five months of 2019 than in the analogous period of the previous year. The result was mainly affected by the decrease in the volume of aggregate transport. In total the carriers transported almost 100 million tonnes of goods on the Polish railway system during the aforementioned period. The given value is lower by over 3% in comparison to the same period of last year.

In the first five months of 2019 the carriers executed the transport performance at the level of 23.8 billion tonne-kilometres - nearly 2% less than in the same period of last year, while the vehicles travelled almost 34.7 million train-kilometres (-2.9%).
