Beginning with the calendar year 2006 data, the Corps will no longer generate the monthly and annual Waterborne Databanks and Preliminary Waterborne Cargo Summary reports.  Historical Waterborne Databanks will still be available for purchase from the Maritime Administration (MarAd). Special tabulations and customized reports created from these datasets for the private sector should be arranged through MarAd.  Contact Marad at: Office of Statistical and Economic Analysis, U.S. Maritime Administration, 400 Seventh Street, SW, Washington, DC  20590  fax: 202-366-8886;  voice: 202-366-2267; e-mail:  For current and future trade-based publications and special tabulations please contact the U.S. Census Bureau’s Foreign Trade Division at 301-763-2311.


The Corps will continue to produce and enhance its manifest-based data products which serve as the official statistics on U.S. Foreign Waterborne Transportation Statistics.
