Statistics on the enterprise level

The structural business statistics for supporting and auxiliary transport activities are compiled both on the local KAU level and on the enterprise level. On the enterprise level total turnover was NOK 48.6 billion in 2003, while the total number of persons employed were 22 281.

Figures on the enterprise level will usually deviate somewhat from figures compiled on the local KAU level. This is due to the fact that enterprises are registered in the industry subclass that comprises the main part of the activity of the enterprise, and therefore may be registered in a different industry than some of the local KAUs within the enterprise. For more information about these and other definitions used in the structural business statistics for supporting and auxiliary transport activities, see "About the statistics".
