NOTE: The original source of the data in this table, the American Association of Port Authorities, notes that the metric tons used for the rankings are estimates from various sources, including the individual seaports, and are based on cargo weights, volumes, and units. As such, the figures cannot be converted into a single standardized measure such as TEUs. Because of this, the estimates are also not directly comparable across all seaports.
