Commodity code: Description based on the two-digit Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (HS).

All land modes: Canada export data for all land modes represent transshipments (e.g. trade shipments between Canada and a third country that were transshipped via the United States). Canadian import data are based on the last mode of transport by which the cargo was transported to the port of clearance in Canada.
