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 5
starting with July 1956, the statistics on
borne exports of domestic and foreign merch
and .j.-Department of Defense shipments of A -
cial category" commodities exclude shipment i1b-
dividually valued at less than $5C:. Fo A
months January through June 1956, these sta '
tics exclude export shipments individually vald
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-
ments having a shipping 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 January 1958 statistics
the import data exclude only those shipments
where the value is less than '1 ) 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, shown
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-
toms area for shipment to foreign countries and
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 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 de-
scribed below for which information is shown in
separate columns in table 1.


Departier.t of Defense controlled and "spe-
cial category" figures, shown in columns 6 and 11
and in tables 5 and 6 of this report
S idated data for the following types

1. export shipments of Department of
D controlled cargo under special
f i aid Frograis, i.e., Internation-
.a Co eration Administration, Army Ci-
Si Su ,pl'y, etc., made aboard United
at flag vessels such as Army-Navy
r- Fort. or commercial vessels char-
aid by the Department of Defense under
me, 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
', issue of Foreign Trade Statistics
Notes.

Only shipping weight data in terms of United
States port or coastal district of lading and
foreign trade area of unlading are shown for
these classes of shipments since information on
the dollar value of exports of Department of De-
fense controlled 3argo is not available at this
level of detail. C:.: : tly, the total value
figures shown in columns 12' and 15 of table 1 for
dry cargo and tanker shipments in that order cor-
respond to the shipping weight figures shown in
columns 3 and 8, respectively, of the same table.

Vessel import figures, shown in columns 3,
6, 9 and 12 of table 2 and in table 4 of this re-
port, are general imports and represent the total
of imports for immediate consumption plus entries
into customs bonded storage and manufacturer .
warehouses made at the United States Customs area

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 trai:.-p.rti 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
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 mer-
chandise transferred from one vessel to another
in the United States port of arrival and -'hiYf-d
to a foreign country without being released from
Customs custody in the United States; and (2)
foreign merchandise arriving by vessel at one
United States port, shipped through the United
States under 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 warehouse for immediate export by vessel or
for transportation and export by vessel (such
merchandise was not recorded as an import when it
entered the 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
Zone 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 Fi -'- 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 H,
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 moisture content.
Vessel export values represent the values at time
and place of export. They are based on the sell-
ing 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 imrrt 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 imposition of import duties at the
United States, the valuation reported for such
shipments is not verified by customs to the ex-
tent applicable in the case of impor+ 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 c. -Ir, or tanker s1irmew t: sole-
ly on 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-
."-cion 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
i-T 3 line operator of dry cargo vessels on
berth. The itineraries and sailing schedules of
such vessels are predetermined and fixed. Ir-
regular or '-1 service is that of service
afforded by dry cargo vessels which are chartered
or otherwise hired for the carriage of goods on
special .;..'- Vessels in this type of service
are not on berth and their sailing schedules are
not predetermine' or fixed.
