請問”from ... down to”片語的意思?

Each lorry carried more than 15 tones of goods from Taipei down to Taichung. 英翻中, 為什麼要用 down to 而不是 to, 此外 down 的辭性為何?

    down在此是副詞,是往南方/南下的意思。(參看http://tw.dictionary.yahoo.com/search?ei=UTF-8&p=d...

    from .....down to不是什麼既定的片語。from.......to才是片語,從哪兒到哪兒的意思。down在這是地方副詞,說明前進方向。

    Each lorry carried more than 15 tones of goods from Taipei down to Taichung.

    每一輛卡車滿載超過十五噸貨物,從台北南下台中。
