Goods transport by rail vs. Goods transport by road

Do you know that…?

Currently, a MEDWAY train emits an average of about 6.0 Kg CO2 eq / Km, while the transport of the same amount of goods by truck represents an emission of around 20.4 Kg CO2 eq / Km, which corresponds to a reduction of 71 % of CO2 eq / Km emissions from the train when compared to the truck. This reduction reaches 74%, if transport is carried out exclusively using electric locomotives.
