For imports, the mode of transport information represents the last mode of transport by which the cargo was transported to the port of clearance in Canada. This may not be the mode of transport by which the cargo arrived at the Canadian port of entry if Canadian Customs cleared the cargo at an inland port.

For exports, the mode of transport information represents the mode of transport by which the international boundary is crossed. For Canadian exports via the United States to other overseas countries, the mode reported would be the mode used to cross the Canadian/U.S. border.

This table represents only the value of the top 5 Customs ports of clearance or exit for each mode of transportation for the year 2015. Tables 6-1a, 6-1b, and 6-1c provide the complete set of trade data by mode of transportation for the years 1990 and 1995-2015 between Canada, the United States, and Mexico.
