1. The figures for 'road', 'rail', 'coastwise shipping' and 'inland waterways' relate to freight lifted in Scotland; for 'pipeline' it is the estimated tonne-kilometres for crude oil carried by on-shore pipelines which are over 50km in length. This table does not show the tonne-kilometres for "one port" traffic to / from oil rigs and the sea bed or for "coastal shipping" (as defined in part [a] of this table).
2. The figures are all for calendar years except for the figures for "rail", which are for the financial years which start in the specified calendar years (e.g. the "rail" figures for "1997" are for "1997-98").
3. Over 50km
4. A new system for collecting port statistics was introduced in 2000. Data prior to that are on a different basis.
5. Changes to the methodology for collecting road freight data mean that previous figures are not comparable.
