Commodity Flows and Shipments in Urban Areas in Norway

Varestrømmer og forsendelser i byområder

This report maps and compares flows of goods in urban regions in Norway, across a number of industries. There has long been a lack of such information, at detailed geographical levels. An improved understanding of commodity flows and shipments within urban areas is needed for city planning and management. The authors investigate the tonnage of transported goods, the number of shipments, and average shipment sizes. While the results provide more insight at a more detailed geographical level, the authors’ research revealed several problems in data sources, particularly the Commodity Flow Survey. These challenges have been taken into account and are used to provide a firmer basis for further research.
