U.S.-NAFTA freight down from previous month; 16th straight decrease

Trucks carried more U.S. freight by value with North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) partners Canada and Mexico in April 2016 compared to April 2015 but declines in all other freight modes led to a 3.2 percent decrease, to $90.4 billion, in total cross-border freight.
