I exported a document library with export-spweb. After this, I imported it to another site collection with import-spweb.

My issue is when I compare the 2 libraries. In the source I have 1272 items and in the destination I have 1243 items.

When I look in the log import I have no errors.

looks like you have 29 documents that are checked out. Make sure that all documents are checked in first. when performing a export-spweb it does it on the checked in version. if it doesn't have one then its ignored.
