What word could describe an operation of either importing or exporting?
X is to import and export as migration is to immigration and emigration.
Porting isn't the word I'm looking for, I don't think, but that's what I'm getting at. Cheers!

As noted earlier, a more precise word will depend on the context:
As I just posted on another question that references this one:
Conveyance - the action or process of transporting or carrying someone or something from one place to another.
This is completely applicable to the import and export of items between countries and borders.
inout is in current use to mean the export/import of data
Elasticsearch InOut Plugin ..(P)rovides the ability to export data by query on server side, by outputting the data directly on the according node... The exported data can also be imported into elasticsearch again. https://github.com/crate/elasticsearch-inout-plugin
One word to include Import/Export? What about the term "Commercial" which refers to commerce which in turn means "the exchange or buying and selling of commodities on a large scale involving transportation from place to place," according to Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary: 10th Edition (1993).
