Producer prices for services were pushed up particularly by higher prices of freight transport by road and rents of office and business premises from the year before. The increase in the total index was also affected by higher prices of postal activities under universal service obligation and management consulting services. The rise was held back by lower prices of telecommunication, cargo handling and information service activities.

Compared to the fourth quarter of last year, producer prices for services went up by 0.6 per cent.
