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.

As of December 10, 2021 the preliminary figures for 2019 have been adjusted as a result of changes in the sources. In addition, an improvement in the approach mainly had an effect on the estimated goods value of total transport and transport transit trade: these have been adjusted upwards, as a result of which they are more in line with the estimated values for the surrounding years.

Data available from: 2007

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

Changes as of March 17, 2022:
Due to confidentiality rules, the estimated values of imports, transit trade and total transport of coal by sea and natural gas through pipelines from a number of country groups and continents have been removed from the table.

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.

Description topics

Estimated value transported goods
Estimated value of transported goods expressed in thousands of euros. In the case of imported goods, this is the value of foreign goods supplied to residents according to the international trade statistics. Imports from EU countries: the value of goods is including freight and insurance costs to the Dutch border. Imports from non-EU countries: the value is including freight and insurance costs to the external border of the European Union. In the case of exports, this is the value of goods supplied by Dutch residents to foreign trading partners according to the international trade statistics. The value is including freight and insurance costs to the Dutch border.

Imports from non-EU countries: the value is including freight and insurance costs to the external border of the European Union.

Confidence interval
The estimated 95-percent confidence interval expressed as a percentage. For example, a confidence interval of 10 percent means that the real figure lies within the interval defined by the figure in the table minus 10 and plus 10 percent with a probability of 0.95. The real figure is also more likely to be found in the centre of the confidence interval than towards the extremities. So, the real figure is more likely to be close to the figure in the table than far away.
Estimated gross weight transported goods
Estimated gross weight of transported goods expressed in thousands of kg. The gross weight includes the weight of the goods and packing, but is exclusive the weight of the container in which the goods are carried.
Gross weight
