Overseas imports are often transhipped to Tasmania after being cleared through Customs in the larger mainland Australian ports, and so are not included in the figures reported for imports to Tasmania. As a result, imports into Tasmania are under-stated in Australian Bureau of Statistics figures because only direct imports into Tasmania are recorded.

During 2002-03, the value of direct imports to Tasmania increased by 49.8% to $776.7 million. The two main imports were ships, boats and floating structures which accounted for $295.5 million or 38.0% of imports, and pulp and waste paper ($84.4 million or 10.9% of imports).
