Selected states shown had the highest estimated weight without considering sampling variability and are shown in descending order. Since an “All other states” line is not shown, estimates do not add to total. Ton-miles estimates are based on estimated distances traveled along a modeled transportation network. Value-of-shipments estimates have not been adjusted for price changes. For more information, visit
