The total rail freight movement in Great Britain amounted to 16.6 billion net tonne-kilometers in 2019/20. Of this, 6.8 billion net tonne-kilometers were domestic intermodal freight. Construction materials were the products most commonly moved, at 4.6 billion net tonne-kilometers transported that year.
Regarding road freight movement, figures for 2018 amounted to 161 billion tonne-kilometers, with 3.5 million heavy goods vehicles traveling to Europe from the UK. In 2019, freight volume transported to the EU15 by UK-registered vehicles amounted to just under four million tonnes and freight volume transported to Ireland amounted to 1.1 million tonnes.
In terms of maritime transportation, the Port of London received the greatest volume of inward sea freight. In 2019, 44.5 million tonnes of sea freight arrived at the capital city. In contrast, outward sea freight volume from the Firth of Forth port was the highest recorded for any port, at 20.2 million tonnes and mainly attributed to the surrounding fossil fuel industry.
