Trucks – tonne-kilometres
Trucks account for 42 billion tonne-kilometres
In 2017, trucks covered well over 45 billion tonne-kilometres in the Flemish Region. Tonne-kilometre is a unit of measurement that combines weight and distance. For example, transporting 2 tonnes (of goods in weight) across a 2-kilometre distance represents 4 tonne-kilometres.
The number of tonne-kilometres for 2017 was slightly down from the previous year.
More tonne-kilometres in the Flemish Region than in the other regions
