This table contains data on total vehicle kilometres of goods vehicles in the Netherlands (broken down by Dutch and foreign vehicles) and data of total kilometres and average annual kilometres of Dutch goods vehicles (broken down by Dutch and foreign territory).
All figures are further broken down by lorries and road tractors, by age of the vehicle and by load capacity.
Since 2010 kilometres of foreign vehicles travelled in the Netherlands are based on more detailed road transport data from Eurostat. This leads to an adjustment of the distance by -3%.
Data available from: 1990
Status of the figures:
Definite data are available for 1990 to 2016, and provisional data for 2017 and 2018.
Changes as of 6 November 2019
The provisional figures for 2018 have been added.
The underlying coding of classifications lorries and road tractors, load capacity and age of vehicle used in this table has been adjusted.
It is now in line with the standard encoding defined by CBS.
The structure and data of the table have not been adjusted.
When will new figures be published?
New figures will be published on a yearly basis in November of the subsequent year.
