KEY: - = Zero or Less than half the unit shown; thus, it has been rounded to zero.

1 Ton-miles estimates are based on estimated distances traveled along a modeled transportation network.

NOTES: Toxic by inhalation (TIH) gases and volatile liquids that are toxic when inhaled. Value-of-shipment estimates are reported in current prices.
