Motor fuels for transport;delivery weight, volume, 1946-Aug 2016


This table provides information on deliveries of motor fuels for transport in the Netherlands. Deliveries are either for consumption in the Netherlands and international road transport, which is called final consumption, or for international sea and air transport, which is traditionally called bunkering.

The table gives figure for all modes of transport. Agricultural and mobile equipment is excluded. Figures for relevant motor fuels are given by transport category. Pure biofuels for road transport are not included in this table. Blended biofuels are included in the deliveries of motor gasoline and transport diesel. Biofuels are products produced from agricultural crops.

Deliveries of motor fuels are expressed by energy (petajoules) and physical units (million kg or million kWh). Deliveries for road transport are also published in volume (million litres). This table includes figures (in petajoules) on total transport, total road transport, total water transport, total air transport and total rail transport. This is not possible for physical units, due to different units (e.g. kg and kWh) are not countable.

Data available from:
From 1946 up to and including August 2016

Status of the figures:
All figures from 1946 to December 2013 are definite.
Figures from January 2014 onwards are provisional.
