European Road Freight Transport Survey - Access to microdata

European Road Freight Transport Survey (ERFT)

Description of the dataset

The European road freight transport survey (ERFT) microdata were anonymised for the first time in 2013. Anonymised datasets are available for the reference years starting 2011 (for most recent years, see the data availability table).

European countries collect data on vehicles, journeys and goods transport operations with surveys and transmit them quarterly to Eurostat. The anonymised dataset covers information for an entire year. It includes data from the following countries: AT-BE-BG-CY-CZ-DE-DK-EE-EL-ES-FI-FR-HR-HU-IE-IT-LT-LU-LV-NL-PL-PT-RO-SE-SI-SK-UK-CH-NO. The ERFT microdata are available only as scientific use files.
Regulation (EU) No 70/2012 contains the complete list of survey variables reported to Eurostat. The ERFT microdata user guide contains information on the variables available in the anonymised dataset. More detailed methodological information on the ERFT microdata and participating countries is available in these methodological manuals:
