National coverage

Dit is een dataset die landelijk dekkend is. De data heeft betrekking op heel Nederland.


This table contains figures 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%. The vehicle population used to estimate the kilometres is based on the vehicle fleet statistics. The population of the figures in this table is based on the new selection method of the vehicle fleet. The difference between the old and the new selection method is described in a methodological report, see paragraph 4. The data series of vehicle kilometres estimated for the new population is available starting from 2018. The data series based on the old population ends with 2020. The way in which the vehicle kilometres are estimated has not changed, only the population. For the 2020 data a correction factor was implemented to correct for the ‘smoothing effect’ caused by the method. The smoothing effect smoothes out yearly variation in the data and this results in a distorted picture of periods of time when mobility patterns suddenly change drastically, like happened in 2020 due to COVID-19.

Data available from: 2018

Status of the figures: The figures in this table up to and including 2019 are definitive. Figures over 2020 and 2021 have a provisional status.

Changes as of 11 November 2022: None, this is a new table.

When will new figures be published? New figures will be published on a yearly basis by the end of the subsequent year.
