  • Abstract:
    As the world's largest trading nation, the United States imports and exports more merchandise than any other country. The September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks exacerbated an economic slowdown already in progress, resulting in a marked decline in U.S. international trade and freight movements. In the aftermath of the attacks, transportation security concerns have focused on the vulnerability of the U.S. transportation system. Because large volumes of traded merchandise from all over the world enter the United States daily on ships and airplanes, and on trucks and trains from Canada and Mexico, transportation security has become a top priority with growing attention focused on international import traffic. This report provides a broad overview of changes in U.S. international merchandise trade since 1990 and how transportation modes and services enable this trade, which is a vital part of the U.S. economy. This report can be downloaded as a single PDF file (3.96Mb) or viewed by chapters in HTML format. Tables and figures can be accessed in HTML, CSV, or Excel formats.
