The 1976 edition of this report contains statistics for the 1974 calendar year. Statistics for 1975, 1976, and 1977 should be published during the 1979 calendar year. The report is published for use by both industry and government groups interested in the waterborne foreign commerce of the United States. It contains summaries of containerized cargo statistics for each MarAd-designated U.S. foreign trade route. The data are obtained from operator-filed "Supplemental Unitized Cargo Container Reports, Form MA578A" that are filed with the appropriate District Director of Customs upon each initial entrance or final clearance of a vessel at a U.S. port. In addition to the filings of all commercial merchant vessels, forms are filed for all voyages of merchant vessels operated by or for the Department of Defense, except vessels of the Military Sealift Command Nucleus fleet. Specific data breakdowns include containerized cargo by U.S. coastal districts and selected U.S. ports (number of containers, total tonnage, and percent increase over 1973); percentage of tonnage carried by U.S.-flag vessels through selected U.S. ports; containerized cargo on selected trade routes; comparison of containerized cargo on selected trade routes, calendar years 1973 and 1974; and total trade route and individual trade route statistics (number of containers; total and inbound and outbound cubic feet; and total tonnage moved on the trade route annually, 1970-1974.)
