The survey on usage of highway E18 by transportation companies provided by LUT

Green InterTraffic project press release

Aim of this survey is to explore the development of international road traffic between Finland and Russia from the point of view of relevant companies operating in logistics, transportation and forwarding industry. These companies remain as one of the important target groups of the Green InterTraffic project as well as any general development or investments aimed towards road infrastructure.

Out of the 919 companies 56 answered to the survey, which stands for response rate of 6.1 %. Generally, the results indicate that growth of the road freight business is somewhat stagnating, and international traffic between Finland and Russia is decreasing to some degree. However, highway E18 is seen as safe and fluently working road, and investments towards it have been successful: majority of the companies indicated that these infrastructure investments have benefited directly their business activities. The results of the survey are available at the link:
