The latest toll data released by the BAG for July 2022 has shown that German trucks are responsible for an even lower percentage share of the country's overall truck mileage. The figure has been steadily dropping over the years, a trend that could eventually see foreign lorries responsible for a majority of Germany's truck mileage.
The figures for the month of July were released by the BAG last week.
In an official press release, the BAG noted that more than half of the total truck mileage in Germany in July was covered by domestic vehicles. However, the majority is very slim at 50.9% and has fallen compared to July 2019, when it was 53%.
In the same month, Polish-registered trucks were responsible for 21.6% of Germany’s total freight vehicle mileage. This is up from 18.8% in the same month in 2019.
The mileage share of Lithuanian trucks has also increased, albeit slightly from 3.2% in July 2019 to 3.8% in July 2022.
