The Standard goods classification for transport statistics abbreviated as NST (2007), is a statistical nomenclature for the goods transported by four modes of transport: road, rail, inland waterways and sea (maritime).
As NST 2007 considers the economic activity from which the goods originate, each of its items is strongly connected to an item of the European Union product and activity classifications Classification of products by activity (CPA) and Statistical classification of economic activities (NACE), which themselves are consistent with their counterparts at UN level, CPC and ISIC.
This classification is covered by Regulation (EC) No 1304/2007 of 7 November 2007 amending Directive 95/64, Regulation (EC) No 1172/98, Regulations (EC) No 91/2003 and (EC) No 1365/2006 with respect to the establishment of NST 2007 as the unique classification for transported goods in certain transport modes.
