The market share for Norwegian lorries accounted for 20.1 per cent of all imports and 53.6 per cent of exports by lorries. The corresponding figures for the 3rd quarter of 2014 are 21.6 and 56.1 per cent respectively.
Norwegian lorries transported 1.1 million tonnes of goods in connection with imports and exports in the 3rd quarter; 4.2 per cent less compared with the corresponding quarter last year.
A total of 3.2 million tonnes of goods were transported by lorries across the border in the 3rd quarter of 2015; almost the same as in the 3rd quarter of 2014.
The Baltic countries’ share of transport to and from Norway amounted to 6.6 per cent in the 3rd quarter this year; 0.9 percentage points less than in the same quarter of 2014. The Polish lorries’ market share was 7.7 per cent, which was about the same as last year.
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.
