The methodology

The data

The TEG Road Transport Index is an arithmetic weighted series, tracking PPM (Price per Mile) each month against a base of January 2019.

Weighting is applied according to the mileage mix from each vehicle type using the Paasche formula. This ensures the PPM of each month is compared accurately with the base month.

Data is gathered from completed transactions on the TEG platforms. 

PPM = (sum order values) / (sum order miles)
 
Sample size is circa 2m orders per annum across c. 8,000 participants.  

Data ID: A3, B3, C3
