MARAD Releases Reports on Exports and Imports

Thursday, June 13, 2002
The Maritime Administration (MARAD) has released the latest in a series of reports on U.S exports and imports transshipped via Canada and Mexico. The current report covers Calendar Year 2000 traffic. U.S. imports and exports transshipped via Canada and Mexico continued to increase in 2000 in both tons and value. In terms of value, this traffic was equivalent to 6.5 percent of U.S. liner trade. In 2000, U.S. exports and imports moving through Canada increased by 2.3 percent to an estimated 7 million metric tons valued at $28.3 billion. U.S. imports and exports via Mexico, included in this report only since 1998, grew by 5 percent in 2000 to 275,000 metric tons valued at $3.3 billion. This year’s report departs from past practice in that it does not provide year-over-year comparisons at the detail level. Instead, a separate trend report featuring time series data and focusing on issues associated with the trends is being developed. Changes have also been made to the country of origin/destination and commodity sections to present the data in a more aggregated form. This is the first MARAD publication to be issued in electronic format only. It is available from the MARAD web site or on CD. Detailed data tables, normally appearing as appendices to the report, and the underlying data in MS Access format at the 4-digit Harmonized Commodity Code level, are available only on the CD version. Requests for the CD version should be addressed to the Office of Statistical and Economic Analysis, MAR-450, Room 8107, Maritime Administration, 400 Seventh Street SW, Washington, DC, 20590 (Tel: 202- 366-2267). The web version of the report may be found on the agency’s web site at www.marad.dot.gov in the Publications section.
