ArmInfo.The volume of cargo transportation in Armenia in January-October 2020 to the same period in 2019 increased by 3.5% (against a decline of 51.1% a year  earlier), to 12,271.5 thousand tons. Of these, 8,086.8 thousand tons  (65.7% of the total) accounted for road transportation, which  increased by 3.7% in y-o-y terms. This is evidenced by the data of  the RA Statistical Committee.

According to the source, rail freight traffic during the reporting  period increased by 3.9% - up to 2708.2 thousand tons. At the same  time, air traffic decreased by 18.8% to 13.4 thousand tons.

While cargo transportation was  carried out in normal mode, as evidenced by the data of the RA  Statistical Committee.
