This chart shows the share of detentions of online sales in total detentions, by transport mode, in the European Union over the period 2017-2019, based on the results of the OECD/EUIPO report "Misuse of E-Commerce for Trade in Counterfeits," published in October 2021. The results show that mail/post is the only transport mode of counterfeit goods where the number of detentions related with online sale is higher than the number of cases not related to online sale (71.9% of detentions concern online sales). All the other trasport modes do not exceed 30% of detentions concerning online sale, with Sea/Vessel having the lowest share (1.5%).
