This article reveals some information on the number of vehicles travelling to mainland Europe from Great Britain for the first quarter of 2001. The figures presented are on a seasonally adjusted basis to help identify underlying trends, especially changes between successive quarters. There has been a negligible increase in the number of powered vehicles while the number of unaccompanied trailers crossing to the continent rose by about four percent. The report includes a supplement of statistics from the "2000 International Road Haulage Survey" which covers the international activity of British-registered heavy good vehicles.
