This report presents estimates of transport volumes by cargo vessels in Norwegian waters 2010-2015 . The report is an update of estimates documented in the TØI report 1369/2014. It has long been questioned whether estimates of transport volumes for cargo vessels in Norwegian waters are correctly represented in the Transport statistics (“Transportytelsesstatistikken”) which Statistics Norway and the Institute of Transport Economics prepares in cooperation. Latest survey of the transport pattern for freight vessels was in 1993. Since then there has been a significant transition to flags of convenience of the cargo vessels fleet. The main principle for the Transport services statistics is that only Norwegian registered vehicles should be included. The calculations presented here are based on raw data from Statistics Norway’s quarterly port statistics.
