Rail freight statistics have been added from Statistics Denmark. The dataset is broken down by type of transport and includes domestic freight, international freight, and transit.

The chart below displays the evolution on a year-on-year basis of the total rail freight, with the transportation types’ individual contributions presented in stacked columns. Denmark’s railway system is connected to Germany and Sweden and serves as a hub for rail freight between Continental Europe and the Nordics. This is emphasized in the chart where transit appears as the main driver of railway freight.

South Korea

We’ve complemented our coverage for industrial shipments with the addition of selected electronic components shipped domestically and internationally. Items include, among others, semiconductors, computers & peripheral equipment, electronic components, and more.

We displayed selected electronic items in the 2nd pane of the chart below, transformed on a year-on-year percent change and smoothed by applying a 3-month average. On the first pane, we calculated a cross-sectional average of these four items and compared it with an indicator of global trade from CPB – a Dutch institute. We found that the cross-sectional average had the highest correlation with the CPB indicator when it is pushed forward by 2 months, suggesting that it can be used as a leading indicator for global trade evolution.
