eleents as are specified below.


:'ecive 'a..ear 'r '- the statistics on water-
bor exp.r'= dmstic and fore-ir merchandise
and -.c.',-L part ..r.* of efre'e shiprf ri* r' "s '-
cial catego~;." commodities exclude shipments to
Canada i.iv:j 'all;, value at less than $2,000
and shipments to other countries indiviJuallv
val'ei at less .riar. $5)l. From July 1'-3 through

January: through June 1956 these statistics exclude
all shipments individually valued at less than
$1,000.


From January 1954 through December 1957 vessel
import figures exclude shipments having a ship-
ping weight of less than 2,000 pounds, regardless
of value, as well as shipments valued at less
than $100,regardless of shipping weight. Starting
with Januar; 195 statistics the import data
exclude only those shipments where the value is
less than $100 regardless of shipping weight.


Vessel export figures in this report, shown in
columns 4, 9, 13, and 16 of table 1 and in table
3, represent exports of domestic and foreign
merchandise laden at the United States Customs
area for shipmentto foreign countries and include
export shipments totUnited States civilian Govern-
ment agencies and non-Department of Defense con-
trolled foreign aid program shipments as described
below. Excluded from these figures are shipments
to the United States armed forces abroad of
supplies and equipment for their own use as well
as the other types of shipments described below
for which information is shown in separate columns
in table 1.

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

The following types of shipments are excluded from
both the vessel export and import data: (1) ship-
ments of household and personal effects,(2) ship-
ments 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 fn bond through the United
States in transit from one foreign country to
another without having been entered as an import
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 terms
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 from vessels.
The waterborne outbound and inbound in-transit
statistics include (1) foreign merchandise trans-
ferred from one vessel to another in the United
States port of arrival and shipped to a foreign
country without being released from Customs cus-
tody in the United States; and (2) foreign mer-
chandise arriving by vessel at one United States
port, shipped through the United States inder
Customs. 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 ware-
house for immediate export by vessel or for trans-
portation and export by vessel (such merchandise
was not recorded as an import when it entered the
warehouse), and (2) foreign merchandise shipped
via vessel from a United States Foreign Trade Zone
to a foreign country (such merchandise isdeposited
in the Foreign Trade Zone without being enteredas
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 Statc; by vessel and leaving by some other
method of -ransportation is included in the in-
bound data only. On the other hand, merchandise
arriving by other than waterborne transportation
and laden aboard vessels upon departur- is in-
cluded in the outbound statistics but not in the
inbound data. The inbound and outbound segments,
therefore, do not counter-balance one another and
are complementary 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 excluded from these data see teFebruary
1953 issue of the Foreign Trade Statistics Notes.


All types of outbound vessel shipments in tables
1 and 5 are credited to the coastal districts,
customs districts, and ports at which the merchan-
dise was laden. All types of Ibound vessel ship-
ments in table 2 are credited to the coastal dis-
tricts, 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 credited to
the foreign trade areas at which the merchandise
was unladen. Vessel imports in table 4 are cred-
ited to the foreign trade areas at which the
merchandise was laden aboard the vessels carrying
the cargo to the United States. The countries of
destination or origin of merchandise are not nec-
essarily 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 Class-
ification and Definition of Fon. in Trade Areas.

Shipping weight figures represent the gross weight
of shipments, including the weight of containers,
wrappings, crates and moisture content. Vessel
export values represent the values at time and
place of export. They are based on the selling
price (or' on the cost if not sold) and include
inland freight, insurance and other charges to
place of export. Transportation 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 merchandise is not subject to the imposi-
tion of import duties at the United States, the
valuation reported for such shipments is not
verified by customs to the extent applicable in
the case of import entries and may in some 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 solely on the
basis of the type of vessel used without 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 segregation 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 cargo vessels on berth. The
itineraries and sailing schedules of such vessels
are predetermined and fixed. Irregular or tramp
service is that type of service afforded by dry
cargo vessels which are chartered or otherwise
hired for the carriage of goods an special voyages.
Vessels in this type of service are not on berth
and their sailing schedules are not predetermined
or fixed.
