1 Shipments are grouped into distance categories based on Great Circle Distance (GCD). GCD is the shortest distance between two points on the surface of a sphere over the surface of that sphere.
2 Ton-miles estimates are based on estimated distances traveled along a modeled transportation network.
NOTES: The data presented in this table exclude shipments from the following establishments classified in the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) as: farms, forestry, logging, fisheries, construction, publishing, and crude petroleum production; households; governments; and most retail and service businesses. Also excluded are most imports and commodities shipped from a foreign location to another foreign destination that pass through the United States. Estimates are preliminary and may be revised.
