KEY: N = Data are nonexistent.

NOTE: Total trade with Canada and Mexico: Individual modes do not sum to total trade figures because not all U.S. modes of transportation are included here. See Appendix B for a list of U.S. modes not specifically identified on this table. In addition, in some cases, a summation of the individual modal categories will exceed the reported total trade value because transshipment data are included in the data for land modes of transportation (road, rail and pipeline). Transshipment data cannot be separated from the modal totals for road, rail and pipeline for 1995 and 1996. For an explanation of transshipment data, See Appendix B. Also See Appendix B for information on modal percentage shares, using 1997 data from which transshipment data have been excluded from the land modes.
