OTTAWA, Ont. — Canada-based, long-distance, for-hire carriers hauled 136 million metric tonnes of freight in the first two quarters of 2001.
This was a two per cent increase compared with 133.3 million tonnes in the same period of 2000.
Although domestic activities accounted for 74 per cent of total tonnage and 80 per cent of total shipments, trans-border movements generated 45 per cent of total revenues earned and 49 per cent of total tonne-kilometres for these carriers.
