Since the start of the year, truck traffic has fallen slightly by 1%, due to the exceptional weather conditions in Spain at the beginning of the year.

Passenger Shuttle traffic has decreased by 4% compared to May 2016, with 212,930 vehicles transported penalized by an unfavorable electoral calendar in France. Passenger Shuttle traffic has decreased slightly since 1 January with nearly 935,000 vehicles transported.
