The Netherlands is number one on the first transport scoreboard published by the European Commission last Friday. The scoreboard compares member state performance in 22 transport-related categories and highlights the top and bottom performer in each category. The Netherlands and Germany lead the list with high scores in 11 categories, followed by Sweden, the United Kingdom and Denmark.

The EU transport scoreboard is intended to provide a snapshot of the performance of the member states in transport matters and to help member states identify areas for improvement and define priorities for investment and policy-making. The scoreboard combines data from a variety of sources (such as Eurostat, the European Environment Agency, the World Bank and the OECD). The Commission intends to refine the indicators in the years to come, together with member states, industry and other stakeholders and to track member state progress over time.

The scoreboard can be consulted either by mode of transport (road, rail, water, 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.The scoreboard is complemented by country-specific statistics without rankings (expenditure on transport, share of the various modes of transport, expenditure of EU funding in the field of transport).
