Statistical sample survey on the international freight transport 2016-2019
TRT has been commissioned by the Banca d’Italia (Italian Central Bank) to carry out a four-year survey on the international freight transport, in order to:
identify the unit costs of different transport modes for imports and exports;
identify the components of ancillary costs;
show in a matrix the abroad goods exchange;
define the market share held by Italian actors in the maritime, air and rail transport sectors;
estimate the turnover made by Italian ship-owners abroad.
This project follows similar surveys managed by TRT since 1998, whose results are used by Banca d’Italia to estimate the Balance of Payments for the corresponding years.
