One out of three lorries are Norwegian-registered

One third of all the lorries that crossed the Norwegian border by road were Norwegian-registered in the first quarter of 2016. Norwegian lorries are still dominant, but they continue to lose market shares over time.

Norwegian lorries transported 1.1 million tonnes of goods to and from Norway in the first quarter this year. This is a slight decrease of 0.2 percentage points compared to the first quarter of 2015. The market share for Norwegian lorries accounted for 52.7 per cent of all exports and 20.3 per cent of all imports by lorries.

A total of 3.2 million tonnes of goods were transported by lorries across the border in the first quarter of 2016; 0.5 per cent less than the same quarter last year.

The Baltic lorries' market share of freight transport to and from Norway is gradually increasing, and reached 8.9 per cent in the first quarter of this year. Polish-registered lorries have a roughly similar market share, with 7.8 per cent; 0.1 percentage point more than in the corresponding quarter of 2015.

Overall, these countries' market share was 1.0 percentage point higher than in the first quarter of 2015. The Swedish lorries’ market share decreased by 1.9 percentage points to 27.8 per cent.

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.
