1 England, Wales or Northern Ireland - for the purposes of this table, " UK offshore" is not counted as "another part of the UK"
2 Scotland / Northern Ireland ferries
3 Figures for 1999 and earlier years are approximate: they include an estimate of the number of passengers to/from certain parts of the world.
4 The Rosyth / Zeebrugge service started in May 2002. Figures for services between Lerwick and other countries are available from 1998.
5 Freight lifted by UKHGVs only - does not include freight carried by other HGVs or by other types of vehicle (such as light goods vehicles) The figures for 2004 onwards are not comparable with those for earlier years, due to changes to the methodology
and processing system for the survey.
6 The Rail figures for "to outwith UK" include freight which was taken to Scottish, English or Welsh ports for export
7 These figures relate only to exports from the "major" ports. The number of major ports has increased over the years.
8 The Rail figures for "from outwith UK" include freight which was imported at an English or Welsh port, then brought into Scotland by rail
9 These figures relate only to imports via the "major" ports. The number of major ports has increased over the years.
