Other includes "flyaway aircraft" or aircraft moving under their own power (i.e., aircraft

B eginn in g in January 1996, new edit checks were added to the pro cessing of the
Transborder Surface Freight Data. Because of th ese checks, the number of mail export
shipments f rom the United States to Mexico declined sharply between 1995 and 1996.
The Census Bureau found that a numbe r of rail shipments wer e misidentified as mail
shipments in 1994 and 1995, although the exact proportion of these is unknown.
c
Foreign Trade Zones (FTZs) were added as a mode of transport for land imp ort
shipments beginning in April 1995. Although FTZs are being treated as a mode of
transportation in the Transborder Surface Freight Data, the actual mode for a specific
shipment into or out of an FTZ i s un known because U.S. Customs doe s no t collect this
information.

NOTES: Shipments that neither originate nor terminate in the United States (i.e., in
transit, in-bond 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. Transshipments, however, are included between
1994, 1995, and 1996; these are shipments that entered or exited the United States by
way of a Customs port on the northern or southern border, but whose origin or destination
was a country other than Canada or Mexico. Starting in 1997, transshipme nts are
excluded. Users should note these diffe re nces bef ore comparing figures for 1994-96 with
1997 and subsequent year data. Data exclude export shipments valued at less than
$2,500 and import shipments va lu ed at less than $1,250.
Individual modal totals may not sum to exact export or import totals due to rounding.
