Florida’s trade with Canada and Mexico is generally under-reported in the Merchandise Trade data series because it reports on goods that are shipped by air and sea while the majority of Florida’s trade with our NAFTA partners is primarily trucked across U.S. borders. To get a better understanding of Florida’s trade with these two countries, please refer to the Florida-Origin Exports and Florida-Destination Imports data.
