Road goods vehicle travelling to mainland Europe

Recent data released by the Department for Transport confirms that there were 2.43 million goods vehicles travelling from Great Britain to mainland Europe in 2012.  This is a 1.7% decline from 2011 and 16% lower than 2007.
However, looking at a wider picture, the number of goods vehicles travelling to mainland Europe from Great Britain has increased by almost 75% in the last 20 years.  What is of interest is that over that period there has been a steady increase in the number of foreign registered vehicles travelling from GB to mainland Europe: they has risen from 0.39 million in 1992 to almost 1.5 million in 2012
In the last quarter of 2012, UK registered vehicle accounted for less than 20% of all powered vehicles travelling to mainland Europe and these figures were down on the same period the previous year.
