Transport industry in Sweden - Statistics & Facts

Sweden’s high-income economy has created a modern and technologically advanced transportation industry. The country also has high levels of investment spent on its transport infrastructure - around 0.8 percent of GDP. This means that public transport, freight, and air travel maintain a high degree of modernity. Sweden has one of the highest rates of electric car sales in Europe, and three quarters of its railway is electrified.

In the 2010s, inland freight has steadily grown in volume in Sweden with road freight accounting for the most of this growth. In terms of total distance traveled, private cars account for the vast majority of Sweden’s passenger transport. Sweden's airports are fit to provide modern air transport services, and revenue streams from air freight have been growing strongly as has the number of passengers at airports in Sweden. Scandinavia Airlines is the flag-carrying airline of Sweden in conjunction with Denmark and Norway. Transportation industries across Europe were disrupted as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Sweden has chosen a different path than most other countries to tackle the pandemic. In light of the country's high case numbers, its neighbors are expected to keep their borders shut. The Swedish aviation industry took a big hit, and aircraft landings bottomed out in April 2020.
