KEY: NEC = not elsewhere classified; SCTG = Standard Classification of Transportation Goods; S = data are not published because of high sampling variability or other reasons; U = data are unavailable.

a All data have been revised using data from the final release of the 2007 Commodity Flow Survey.
b Estimates exclude shipments of crude petroleum (SCTG 16).
c Ton-miles estimates are based on estimated distances traveled along a modeled transportation network.

NOTES
Details may not add to totals due to rounding or missing numbers that do not meet publication standards because of high sampling variability or poor response quality.
