Monthly Trade Statistics
In March 2023, CBP processed more than 2.7 million entry summaries valued at more than $274 billion, identifying estimated duties of nearly $6.1 billion to be collected by the U.S. government. Trade via the ocean environment accounted for more than 38.27 percent of the total import value, followed by air, truck and rail. CBP identified 400 entries valued at more than $122.7 million for further examination based on the suspected use of forced labor. These may be subject to a Withhold Release Order, forced labor Finding, or the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act’s rebuttable presumption prohibiting importation into the United States.
CBP seized nearly 1,798 shipments that contained counterfeit goods valued at more than $335 million. CBP also completed 29 audits that identified $24.7 million in duties and fees owed to the U.S. government for goods that had been improperly declared. CBP collected over $33.1 million of this from identified revenue and from previous assignments.
