Norwegian lorries fall behind

While 51 per cent of the goods that passed the national border on road in 2000 were carried by Norwegian registered lorries, the share dropped to 46 per cent in 2006. German, Polish and Baltic lorries on the other hand, gained their share of the border transport.

More than 260 million tonnes of goods went in or out of Norway in 2006. This includes all modes of transport, also exports of oil and gas by ships and in pipelines. The border transport by lorries was 13.8 million tonnes. Of this, 11.1 million tonnes were transported by lorries that passed the border on road, and the Norwegian lorries carried 5.1 million out of these tonnes. For the remaining 2.7 tonnes of goods, the lorry and/or the trailer was transported to or from Norway by ferry.

The total quantity of goods transported by lorry across the national border on road increased by 33 per cent from 2000 to 2006. The border transport by Norwegian lorries also had a rise, but only of 19 per cent in the same period.

Polish cars’ share had the highest rise

Swedish lorries’ share of the border transport to and from Norway showed, like the Norwegian lorries’ share, a reduction from 2000 to 2006. The situation is the same for Finnish and Danish lorries. The biggest climb in parts of the transport had the Polish lorries. In 2006, they freighted 2.5 per cent of the goods passing the Norwegian border, while the share was 0.9 per cent in 2000. German and Baltic lorries did also increase their share of the Norwegian border transport considerably. All together, Polish, German and Baltic lorries gained their share of the border transport from 3 to 8 per cent from 2000 to 2006.

The total imports of goods, measured in weight, have during the period 2000-2006 fallen for goods from Estonia and Finland, while the imports from the other Nordic and Baltic countries, and also Poland and Germany, have risen.

Swedish cars biggest on imports

A total of 5.1 million tonnes of goods were carried by Norwegian lorries across the national border on road in 2006. Of this, 2.7 million tonnes were in exports and 2.5 million tonnes were in imports. Swedish lorries carried 2.6 million tonnes in to Norway and have thus a bigger share of imports than Norwegian lorries. Only 0.8 million tonnes were exported by Swedish lorries. Together, Norwegian and Swedish lorries had 77 per cent of the border transport on road in 2006 against 83 per cent in 2000.
