U.S. Agricultural Port Profiles
The U.S. ocean and port transportation systems are essential in moving agricultural products to customers around the world. The visualizations here provide an overview of how agriculture uses the U.S. port system. For the busiest ports, information is provided on containerized and bulk commodities and on refrigerated and dry shipments. For agricultural exports and imports, destinations and origins are also included as filters.
The filters and hierarchy functions in the graphs below allow users to view very specific, granular information. The first two pie charts display the top U.S. ports for agricultural exports (left chart) and imports (right chart). When a port is selected in either pie chart, the chart displays the top agricultural-destination and -origin countries served through that port. When a further selection is made for country, the chart shows the share of agricultural products moved on containerized and bulk vessels for that particular country.
In the final four charts, select a single port to view data for agricultural imports and exports through that port.
Containerized and Bulk Comparison by U.S. Port
The graph below presents the share of waterborne agricultural trade moved in containers and bulk vessels. Use the filter options to toggle between export and import shipments and choose the month and year of data.
Refrigerated and Dry Comparison by U.S. Port
The graph below presents shares of refrigerated and dry waterborne agricultural trade at the top U.S. agricultural ports. Use the filter options to toggle between export and import shipments and choose the month and year of data.
Top Agricultural Trade Commodities
The graphs below display the top 15 commodities in U.S. agricultural trade. Each bar shows the breakdown of the commodities moved in containerized and bulk ocean transport. Filters are available for viewing import and export commodities, as well as for port of entry or exit.
