The Standard Goods Classification for Transport Statistics (NST 2007) is related to four modes of transport (road, rail, inland waterways and maritime) statistics. NST 2007 takes account of the economic activity from which the goods originate. This means that each of its items is strongly interrelated with an item of the European Union Classification of Products by Activity (CPA) and the Statistical Classification of Economic Activities (NACE).
