That meant trucks moved 55% of the freight by value. The value of transborder freight between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico reached £109.2 billion, down 3.4% from August 2021, but up 13.3% from September 2020 and 7.7% higher than September 2019.
The top three commodities moved by trucks included computers and parts (£12,9 billion), electrical machinery (£10.8 billion), and vehicles and parts (£7.9 billion).
Trucks also accounted for £38.7 billion of the freight moved across the U.S.-Mexico border, representing 70.6% of all the freight to cross the southern frontier.
