Freight rail transport revenue in Norway 2010-2022

Revenues of the Norwegian rail freight transport industry are projected to decline 33 percent, from 200 million U.S. dollars in 2010 to 134 million by 2022. Key reasons for the decline include a rise in the transportation costs, weak distribution processes, the growth in trucking services for inland freight transport and the growth of sea and air freight services. Additionally, the extreme weather conditions also make rail transport unfeasible for some months in a year, thereby affecting sales.

In 2017, the amount of freight transported by rail amounted to 3.6 billion tonne-kilometers. In comparison, the amount of freight transported by road during the same period amounted to 19.7 billion tonne-kilometers whilst that by sea amounted to 24.3 billion tonne-kilometers.

New strategy to compete with road freight

In a bid to compete with the road freight sector, the Norwegian Railway Directorate has proposed a strategy that is expected to be implemented in the country’s 2022-2033 National Transport Plan. Key points include the introduction of longer trains and improvements at freight depots along with better traffic management.
