Table description


This table shows the international commodity flows from, to and through the Netherlands. For imports, exports, re-exports, transit trade and warehouse traffic, the table represents the value and gross weight of transported goods broken down by commodity group, transport mode, cargo type (containerized or non-containerized goods), country group of origin or destination and country group of loading or unloading.

This publication is co-financed by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management.

Data available from: 2007

Status of the figures:
The figures in this table are provisional.

Changes as of March 26, 2021
As a result of ongoing analyzes and research, the provisional figures for the years 2018 and 2019 have been adjusted. This results in a change in the figures for total outbound transport and the distribution of the outbound commodity flows according to the individual country groups.

The underlying codes of the classifications used in this table for Continents and country groups have also been adjusted. These are now in line with the standard codes established by Statistics Netherlands. The structure and data of the table have not been adjusted.

When will new figures be published?
Generally, new, provisional data will become available approximately one year after the end of the reporting year. Figures on international commodity flows are subject to adjustment when new or updated sources become available. As a result, the status of the figures will be provisional for a longer period of time.
