Near every fifth lorry across the border is from Poland or the Baltic countries
In total, lorries transported 3.2 million tonnes of goods to or from Norway in the 3rd quarter of 2016; a decrease of 0.5 per cent from the 3rd quarter of 2015. The Polish and Baltic lorries’ market share increased from 16.4 to 18.8 per cent during the same period, while Norwegian lorries’ share of border transport fell from 33.4 to 31.5 per cent.

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.
