The world is interconnected through transport. The sector ensures that bananas from Costa Rica reach our tables or that wooden furniture from Estonia finds a place in Finnish or Swedish homes. A great transport system is an important component of the modern living and business environment.
Transport is divided into land transport (i.e. road and rail), water transport and air transport. Together these modes influence almost all economic activities, including the service sector. The developments and demand of these, in turn, have an impact on the health of the transportation sector. Both local and international economic situation play a role.
Statistics Estonia publishes the following data on transport:
- number of passengers carried by road, rail, sea and air transport, and freight volumes;
- data on transport infrastructure;
- registered vehicles and accidents;
- economic indicators of transport enterprises.
Well-functioning transport networks promote local business and, more generally, the competitiveness of the economy. Transport indicators help to contribute to faster and more convenient modes of movement, to people and goods reaching destinations safely and without interruption, to quality of roads and environmental sustainability.
