The share for Norwegian lorries decreased by 1.8 percentage points from the 2nd quarter of 2014 to the corresponding quarter in 2015, giving a total of 34.5 per cent of the total border transport by road. During the same period, Swedish registered vehicles increased their market share by 0.9 percentage points to 28.9, and consequently had the biggest market share among the foreign lorries.

The Baltic share of shipments across the border is steadily increasing, and totalled 7.9 per cent in the 2nd quarter in 2015. The Polish share amounted to 7.4 per cent; 0.5 percentage points more compared to the corresponding quarter in 2014.

Lorries transported almost 3.5 million tonnes of goods across the border by road in the 2nd quarter of 2015. This is 3.0 per cent more than in the same quarter last year. Exports increased by 4.3 per cent compared with the corresponding quarter last year, while imports rose by 2.1 per cent. Norwegian lorries transported 55.8 per cent of the goods out of the country but only 20.7 per cent in the country. This is 3.7 and 0.9 percentage points less respectively than in the 2nd quarter of 2014.

Changes in transport distributionOpen and readClose

A large part of the timber exports that were incorrectly registered as lorry transport over a long period were moved to rail transport as from the 3rd quarter of 2014. New figures are updated dating back to the 1st quarter of 2013. There will therefore be a break in the statistics between the 4th quarter of 2012 and the 1st quarter of 2013. This is primarily important for comparability with the total number and market share of exports.
