Freight Analysis Framework Data Tabulation Tool (FAF4)

Total FlowsDomestic FlowsImport FlowsExport Flows

This option is provided for users interested in tabulating FAF4 data to examine import flows moved from foreign regions to domestic destinations. Geographies for this type of flow include foreign origin region, zone of entry (State or region), and domestic destination. Mode of transportation consists of two types, the domestic mode and the inbound mode used between a foreign origin region and the zone of entry. Import shipments that do not move beyond the zone of entry are classified as “No domestic mode” under the “domestic mode” category.

Notes: The units of measure are thousands of tons for weight, millions of dollars for value, and millions for ton-miles. Forecasts for 2020 and beyond are for the baseline scenario. Data before the FAF4 base period (1997 through 2007) are only available at the state level because regions differ across years, and thus are not strictly comparable. The current data is version 4.5.
