Goods transport in Switzerland is mainly carried out over land, i.e. by road and rail. Together, these two modes of transport generated a transport performance of 27.2 billion tonne-kilometres in 2019. The highest previously recorded value was 28.2 billion tonne-kilometres in 2014.
In 2019, 63% of transport performance on land was generated by road vehicles, 37% by rail. In transalpine goods transport, the share of rail transport was considerably higher at 71%.
In import and export traffic, airfreight, Rhine shipping and oil pipelines are also significant components besides road and rail transport.
