Norwegian lorries carried 48.7 per cent of the goods across the border in 1990. In 2000 this share was 43.2 per cent, or 4 million tonnes of goods. Swedish lorries have increased their share of the goods transported over the last ten years, and they transported 38 per cent of the total quantity in 2000. The number of lorries carrying goods across the border has shown a similar development in market shares. In 1990 half of all lorries crossing the national border were Norwegian, and in 2000 this share had gone down to 44 per cent.
