NOTES: Other includes "flyaway aircraft" (i.e., aircraft moving from the
manufacturer to a customer and not carrying any freight), vessels moving under
their own power, pedestrians carrying freight, and miscellaneous.
Shipments that neither originate nor terminate in the United States (i.e., in-transit
shipments) are not included here, although they use the U.S. transportation
system. These shipments are usually part of Mexico-Canada trade and simply
pass through the United States. Merchandise trade data exclude export shipments
valued at less than $2,500 and import shipments valued at less than $1,250.
Individual modal totals may not sum to exact export or import totals due to
rounding.
