CBP Trade Statistics for FY 2011

As part of their Congressional testimony (we’re making a lot of hay out of the many nuggets they gave at this one hearing), they provided Congress with some bullet points on their FY 2011 Trade Statistics.  Doubtful these rise to the level of winning a bar bet, but they’re great to have handy and spout off at that next trade function.

  • CBP operates in 331 ports of entry.
  • The agency inspected 340 million travelers and more than 105.9 million cars, trucks, buses, trains, vessels and aircraft.
  • They processed $2.3 trillion in trade, a 14% increase over 2010.
  • As part of that trade, CBP collected over $37 billion in total duties, taxes and fees, including $355 million in antidumping and countervailing duties.
  • CBP also conducted 24,800 seizures for Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) violations.
