On February 27, 2002, the Maritime Administration (MARAD) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) released November 2001 official U.S. foreign waterborne transportation
statistics. Year-to-date figures through November 2001 show an increase in volume of 3 percent for imports and a 5 percent decrease in volume for exports over the same time period for 2000.
The figures are all derived from the Waterborne Databank, detailed public U.S. foreign waterborne transportation cargo
files, which are now available from MARAD.
