KEY: - Represents data cell equal to zero or less than 1 unit of measure; S = CFS estimate does not meet publication standards because of high sampling variability or poor response quality.
(1) These composite estimates include Commodity Flow Survey (CFS) data and
out-of-scope shipments for sectors that are not included in the CFS such as
imports, logging, construction, retail, services, publishing, municipal solid
waste, and household and business moves. They also include estimates of
in-scope shipments for sectors that are covered in CFS but may have been
underestimated due to small sample size, such as exports, intermodal, and
petroleum products. These composite
estimates serve as the 2002 benchmark data for the FHWA Freight Analysis
(2) "Truck" as a single mode includes shipment that were made by only private truck only, for-hire truck, or a combination of private and for-hire truck.
(3)Estimates for pipeline include shipments of crude petroleum.
(4) Other multiple modes include combination of truck and water, rail and water, and other combinations.
