America’s Top 10 Importers in 2018

No surprises here. Walmart holds onto its #1 position as America's top importer of containerized cargo.

America imports massive quantities of finished products such as running shoes, flat-screen TVs, clothing and so on. It should come as no surprise then that the country’s top importers in 2017 were a familiar list of household names that include Walmart, Target, Home Depot and other big-box retail chain brands.

In this post we share the updated list of the “Top 10 Importers in 2017” of containerized cargo. There are few surprises and no changes in position on the list amongst the top 7 importers.

Further down the list though is where the changes take place with Philips Electronics breaking into the Top 10 in 2017 at number 9, up two positions from last year. Competitor LG also moved up one notch in 2017 to position number 8.
