NOTES FOR DATA ON THIS PAGE: Data do not include transshipment activity. Transshipments are
shipments that enter or exit the United States by way of a U.S. Customs port on the northern or southern
border, but whose origin or destination is a country other than Canada or Mexico. All figures are based on the
declared gross shipment weight and include packaging. Shipping weight for imports may be underestimated
because U.S. Customs Service does not require weight to be reported at the individual commodity level for
surface trade.
