NOTE: All data-Trade levels reflect the mode of transportation as a shipment enters or exits a U.S. Customs port. Flows through individual ports are based on reported data collected from U.S. trade documents. Trade does not include low-value shipments or intransit shipment. Air-Data for all airports are based on U.S. port classifications and include a low level (generally less than 2%-3% of the total value) of small user-fee airports located in the same region. In addition, due to U.S. Census Bureau confidentiality regulations, data for courier operations are included in the airport totals for JFK International Airport and Los Angeles. Water-Data are preliminary.
