The aforementioned line charts illustrates the figures for merchandise transportation in the UK using four different means of transport over a period of twenty-eight years, beginning in 1974.

In general, there was an increase in the quantities of goods transported by road or water or pipeline over the following twenty-eight years. What is more, road was the most common mode of transport, having the highest figure over the period.

In 1974, approximately 70 million tonnes of goods were transported by road, while the figure for products moved by water were nearly the same as that transported by rail, standing at just under 40 million tonnes. At the same time, pipeline, however, transported only a mere five million tonnes of products in the UK.

From that year to 2002, the quantities of goods transported by road witnessed a significant increase, reaching a peak at roughly 98 million tonnes. Despite the stability in the first four years, the figure for water surpassed that for rail and grew up to over 60 million tonnes. The figure for rail, however, decreased marginally before backing up to 40 million tonnes. Meanwhile, pipeline, similar to water, became a more popular way to ship goods and its figure climbed up to 20 million tonnes by the end of the period.
