MarAd Offers Canadian Transshipment Study

The Maritime Administration has released a study, "U.S. Exports & Imports Transshipped Via Canadian Ports," which presents the dollar value of estimated tonnage for United S t a t e s trade transshipped through Canada during calendar year 1979.

It revealed that the value of exports in 1979 were 164 percent greater than 1976 totals and long tons exported increased by 51 percent.

Dollar value imports for the same period increased 176 percent and long tons imported increased by 50 percent.

A similar report was prepared by MarAd in January 1978 covering exports for calendar year 1976.

The new study includes charts which show the tonnage and dollar value of cargoes imported and exported by area.

Limited copies are available from MarAd's Public Affairs Office, Room 3895, Commerce Building, 14th & E Streets, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20230.
