1 Imports by trucks from other countries than the United States are overestimated. In the case of imports, the mode of transport represents the last mode by which the cargo was transported to the port of clearance in Canada and is derived from the cargo control documents of customs. This may not be the mode of transport by which the cargo arrived at the Canadian port of entry in the case of inland clearance. This may, therefore, lead to some underestimation of Canadian imports by the marine and air transport modes.
