WATERBORNE FOREIGN TRADE STATISTICS

COVERAGE


This report presents statistics on total
United States waterborne inbound and outbound
shipments made in foreign trade, with the excep-
tion of such elements as are specified below.

From July 1953 through December 1955 and
starting with July 1956, the statistics on water-
borne exports of domestic and foreign merchandise
and non-Department of Defense shipments of "spe-
cial category" ccmodities exclude shipments in-
dividually valued at less than $500. For the
months January through June 1956, these statis-
tics exclude export shipments individually valued
at less than $1,000. Information on the exclu-
sion of the Low-valued export shipments in the
vessel statistics is contained in the November
1953 and February 1956 issues of the Foreign
Trade Statistics Notes. From January 1954 through
December 1957 vessel import figures exclude ship-
mnts having a shipping weight of less than 2,CC v
pounds, regardless of value, as well as shipments
valued at less than $100, regardless of shipping
weight. Starting with Jmary 1958 statistics
the import data exclude only those shipments
where the value is less than $100 regardless of
shipping weight. Information on the exclusion of
the low-value and low-weight import shipments in
the vessel statistics is contained in the Febru-
ary and March 1954 and January-March 1958 issues
of the Foreign Trade Statistics Notes.

Vessel export figures in this report, ahdnm
in columns 4, 9, 13, and 16 of table 1 and in
table 3, represent exports of domestic and for-
eign merchandise laden at the United States Cus-
to area for shipment to foreign countries and
1l include export shipments to United States civil-
ian Government agencies and non-Department of De-
fense controlled foreign aid program shipments as
described below. Excluded from these figr- are
shipments to the United States armed forces
abroad of supplies and equipment for their own
use as well as the other types of shipment:; de-
scribed below for which information i shown in
separate columns in table 1.


Departmer.t of Defense controlleJ aid "spe-
cial category" figures, shown n columns 6 and 11
of table i and in tales 5 and of this report
cover consolidated Jata for the following types
of shipments:
1. Vessel export shipments of Department of
Defense controlled cargo under specIal
foreign aid programs, i.e., Ir.terna tion-
al Cooperation Administration, ArL.' Ci-
.rilian Supply, etc., made aboard United
States flag vessels such as J-ry-n'aBvy
transports or commercial vessels char-
tered by the Department of Defense ur.der
time, voyage and space charter arrange-
ments and including "special category"
commodities without distinction.
2. Vessel export shipments of "special cat-
egory" commodities not controlled by the
Department of Defense for which detailed
information cannot be shown separately
because of security reasons. For an ex-
planation and list of "special category"
commodities and their presentation in
foreign trade statistics see the April
1958 issue of Foreign Trade Sta'.istics
Notes.

Only shipping weight data in terms of United
States port or coastal district ao lading and
foreign trade area of unlading are shown for
these classes of shipments since Lrform ior. on
the dollar value of exports of Deartrmert of De-
fense controlled cargo is not available at tis
level of detail. Consequently, the otal value
figures shown in columns 12 ad 15 of "ri le 1 for
dry cargo and tanker shimer ts in that order cor-
respond to the shipping weight fiilures sho in
columis 3 and 8, respectively, o:' the sa tble.

from foreign countries. Vessel import figures-
exclude American goods returned by the United
States armed farces for their own use, import
shipments on Army or Navy transports, and ship-
ments covered by informal entries.

The following types of shipments are ex-
cluded from both the vessel export and import
data: (1) Shipments of household and personal
effects, (2) shipments by mail and parcel post,
and (3) shipments of vessels under their own
power and afloat. United States trade with Puerto
Rico and with United States possessions is not
reported as United States exports and imports.

Merchandise shipped in bond through the
United States in transit from one foreign country
to another without having been entered as an im-
port is not included in any of the figures in the
columns previously referred to (imported merchan-
dise cleared through Customs and subsequently
re-exported is included in both the import and
export statistics). Separate information for the
waterborne portion of the in-transit trade in
term of shipping weight and dollar value is
presented in this report in tables 1 and 2.
Columns 5, 10, 14, and 17 of table 1 reflect
in-transit merchandise laden aboard vessels at
United States ports, while columns 4,7, 10 and
13 of table 2 reflect such merchandise unladen
froavessels. The waterborne outbound and inbound
in-transit statistics include (1) foreign mer-
chandise transferred from me vessel to another
in the United States port of arrival and shipped
to a foreign country without being released from
Custom custody in the United States; and (2)
foreign merchandise arriving by vesselj at one
United States part, shipped through the United
States under Custom bond, and leaving the United
States by vessel from a port other than that at
which it arrived. In addition, the waterborne
outbound in-transit statistics also include (1)
foreign merchandise withdrawn from a general
order warehouse for immediate export by vessel or
for transportation and export by vessel (such
merchandise was not recorded as an import when it
entered t+he warehouse), and (2) foreign merchan-
dise shipped via vessel from a United States
Foreign Trade Zone to a foreign country (such
merchandise is deposited in the Foreign Trade
Zane without being entered as an import). Any
inbound or outbound in-transit merchandise moving
by methods of transportation other than vessel is
excluded from the in-transit statistics. Thus,
merchandise arriving at the United States by
vessel and leaving by some other method of trans-
portation is included in the inbound data only.
On the other hand, merchandise arriving by other
than waterborne transportation and laden aboard
vessels upon departure is included in the out-
bound statistics but not in the inbound data.
The inbound and outbound segments, therefore, do
not counter-balance one another and are comple-
mentary only insofar as they involve merchandise
carried by vessels to and from the United States,
For a more detailed discussion of the in-transit
trade statistics and the types of shipments ex-
cluded from these data see the February 1953
issue of the Foreign Trade Statistics Notes.


All types of outbound vessel shipments in
tables 1 and 5 are credited to the coastal dis-
tricts, customs districts, and ports at which the
merchandise was laden. All types of inbound
vessel shipments in table 2 are credited to the
coastal districts, customs districts, and ports
at which merchandise was unladen. In the case of
vessel general imports this is not necessarily
the same as the customs district in which the
goods were entered into warehouse or entered for
immediate consumption.

Vessel exports in tables 3 and 6 are cred-
ited to the foreign trade areas at which the mer-
chandise was unladen. Vessel imports in table 4
are credited to the foreign trade areas at which
the merchandise was laden aboard the vessels car-
rying the cargo to the United States. The coun-
tries of destination or origin of merchandise are
not necessarily located within the trade areas to
which the merchandise is shipped or from which it
is received. Detailed definitions of foreign
trade areas in terms of the countries and ports
included in each are contained in Schedule R,
Code Classification and Definition of Foreign
Trade Areas.

Shipping weight figures represent the gross
weight of shipments, including the weight of con-
tainers, wrappings, crates and sure content.
Vessel export values represent the values at time
and place of export. They are based an the sell-
ing price (or on the cost if not sold) and
include inland freight, insurance and other
charges to place of export. Transpartatioa and
other costs beyond the United States port of
exportation are excluded. Vessel import values,
as well as the values for in-transit shipments,
are generally based on the market or selling
price and are in general f.o.b. the exporting
country. Since in-transit merchanbd~ is not
subject to the imposition of import duties at the
United States, the valuation reported for sush
shipments is not verified by custom to the ex-
tent applicable in the ease of import entries and
may in sme cases include transportation costs
and insurance to the United States as well as
other cost elements.

Vessel shipments in tables 1 and 2 are
classified as dry cargo or tanker shipments sole-
ly an the basis of the type of vessel used with-
out regard to the cargo carried. Tanker vessels
are those primarily designed for the carriage of
liquid cargoes in bulk, while all others are
classified as dry cargo vessels. A further segre-
gation of dry cargo vessel shipments is provided
in tables 3-6 on the basis of type of service,
i.e., liner (berth) or irregular (tramp). Liner
service is that type of service offered by a
regular line operator of dry oargo vessels on
berth. The itineraries and sailing schedules of
such vessels are predetermined and fixed. Ir-
regular or tramp service is that type of service
afforded by dry cargo vessels which are chartered
or otherwise hired for the carriage of goods on
special voyages. Vessels in this type of service
are not on berth and their sailing schedules are
not predetermined or fixed.
