The latest statistics issued by the Department for Transport show that 68% of freight in the UK is moved by truck;the average journey made by by truck is 54 miles.  This compares with only 8% of goods moved by rail freight and 20% by water.  Freight carried by water tends to be heavier and less urgent, and the average journey is 250 miles.
