Toll Index – September 2013

The Toll Index for September 2013  shows a seasonally expected increase in transportation activity compared to August 2013. The number of outbound, border crossing heavy trucks, taking working days into account, increased by 12.17% compared to last August but dropped by 1.83% compared to September 2012. Moreover the seasonal monthly gain of 12.83% this September as compared to August is smaller than a stronger gain of 15.5% in the same pair of months in 2012. This points at a possible slight slowdown of economic activity but with the exception of 2012 this September is the best since 2007.
