Commission publishes first EU Transport Scoreboard

The European Commission has published today for the first time a scoreboard on transport in the EU. It compares Member State performance in 22 transport-related categories and highlights for most of these categories the five top and bottom performers. The Netherlands and Germany top the scoreboard with high scores in 11 categories, followed by Sweden, the UK and Denmark.

The aim of this first EU Transport Scoreboard is to give a snapshot of the diversity of Member State performance in transport matters across Europe and to help Member States identify shortcomings and define priorities for investment and policies. It brings together data from a variety of sources (such as Eurostat, the European Environment Agency, the World Bank and the OECD). The Commission's intention is to refine the indicators in the years to come, in dialogue with Member States, industry and other stakeholders, and to track Member State progress over time.

Commission Vice-President Siim Kallas, responsible for mobility and transport, said: "The new scoreboard is a fantastic tool that shows visually where we stand in making our transport systems more efficient, more customer-friendly, safer and cleaner. It can of course only offer a snapshot, but it gives us and Member States a point of reference and a source of inspiration for our work together."

The scoreboard can be consulted either by mode of transport (road, rail, waterborne, air) or by one of the following categories:

  • Single market (access to market, regulation)

  • Infrastructure

  • Environmental impact

  • Safety

  • Transposition of EU law

  • Infringements of EU law

  • Innovation and research, and

  • Logistics.

In most of the resulting tables, the top five performers are marked in green and the bottom five performers in red.

The scoreboard is complemented by country-specific statistics without rankings (expenditure on transport, share of the different modes of transport, expenditure of EU funding in the area of transport).

Please see MEMO/14/277 for more information country by country.

The following table shows how many times each country appears among the top and bottom performers. The overall score is calculated by subtracting negative scores from positive ones:
