1 Gateway means any port, airport, or border crossing that provides access for the import or export of goods.
2 Water data are preliminary.
KEY: NA = not applicable.
NOTES: Mode of transportation is the type of transportation as a shipment enters or exits at a border port. Flows through individual ports are based on reported data collected from U.S. trade documents. Low-value shipments, generally imports valued at less than $1,250 and exports valued at less than $2,500, are not included. Data for air gateways include some shipments (generally less than 3% of the total value) from small user-fee airports located in the same region. Air gateways not identified by airport name include major airport(s) in that geographic area in addition to small regional airports. In addition, due to U.S. Census Bureau confidentiality regulations, data for courier operations are included in the airport totals for JFK International Airport, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Cleveland, Chicago, Miami, and Anchorage.
