This data file contains annual summaries of modal traffic flow of fresh fruits and vegetables by states of origin to cities of destination, by origins (states), by commodities, and by month. It covers rail, boat, and "available" truck and air shipments in the 48 contiguous states. The following annual summaries are available in hard copy at no charge: Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Shipment Totals by Commodities, States, Months; Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Shipments by States, Commodities, Counties, Stations; and Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Unload Totals for 41 Cities. The data are compiled from various sources including carrier, shipper, and inspection service records. The 3 summary publications contain the available data. Punch cards will not be released; they are destroyed after summarization. However, special tabulations may be performed on request before destruction of source data. These data represent very generalized traffic flow for the included commodities and can probably best be used for demand estimates.
