SUM'ARY REPORT
FT 985


CALENDAR YEAR 1959


UNITED STATES WATERBORNE FOREIGN TRADEi
COVERAGE


This report presents annual statistics in terms of
calendar year periods. The calendar year figures represent
shipments unladen from and laden on vessels arriving or
departing during the interval January 1-December 31. The
statistical year figures published on August 12, 1960,rep-
resent the aggregate of transactions processed during the
twelve monthly periods January-December 1959, including
some shipments unladen from and laden on vessels during
the latter part of 1958 and omitting some late shipments
made during 1959 for which information was not received in
time to be included in the statistical year figures. For
a fuller explanation of the differences between the sta-
tistical and calendar year figures see the July 1952 issue
of Foreign Trade Statistics Notes.

Beginning with July 1956 the export shipments of do-
mestic and foreign merchandise individually valued at
$100-4499 are estimated on the basis of a 10 percent sam-
ple of such shipments. A discussion of the low-value ex-
port shipments in the vessel statistics is contained in
the November 1953 issue of the Foreign Trade Statistics
Notes. In addition, data on the shipping weight and value
of import shipments of under 2,000 pounds with a value of
$100 or more were estimated on the basis of a 2 percent
random sample of import documents t rr.:.i r, 1957. Starting
with January 1958 statistics, the import data exclude only
those shipments where the value is less than $100, regard-
less of shipping weight. A discussion of the low-weight
or low-value import shipments in the vessel statistics is
contained in the March 1954 and January-March 1958 issues
of the Foreign Trade Statistics Notes.


The waterborne statistics presented in the monthly
issues of this report for 1959 excluded the low-valued
exports of domestic and foreign merchandise and non-
Department of Defense shipments of "special category" com-
modities. In order to provide users of the vessel statis-
tics with a series of comparable annual data on a calendar
year basis, this report shows in addition to the detail
for the fully compiled export shipments, total figures
(combining the sample estimate of the low-value export
shipments with the complete coverage segments) on a United
States port level and trade area level. These total
figures for 1959, which include the estimates for exports
are comparable to the calendar year data shown for prior
years.

Vessel export figures in this report, shown in col-
umns 5, 10, 16 and 19 of table 1 and in table 3, represent
exports of domestic and foreign merchandise laden at the
United States Customs area (continental United States,
and Puerto Rico) for shipment to foreign countries and in-
clude export shipments to United States civilian govern-
ment agencies and non-Department of Defense controlled
foreign aid program shipments as described below. Excluded
from these figures are shipments tothe 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.

Department of Defense controlled and "special cate-
i;ory" figures, shown in columns 7 and 12 of table 1 of


USCtOM-DC


this report cover consolidated data for the following types
of shipments:

1. Vessel export shipments of Department of Defense
controlled cargo under special foreign aid pro-
grams, i.e., ':-rer Operations Administration,
Army Civilian Supply, etc., made aboard United
States flag vessels such as Army-Navy transports
or commercial vessels chartered by the Department
of Defense under time, voyage and space charter
arrangements and including "special category'com-
modities without distinction.

2. Vessel export shipments of "special cate o y" com-
modities not controlled by the Department of De-
fense for which detailed information cannot be
shown separately because of security reasons. For
an explanation and list of "special category"
commodities and their presentation in foreign
trade statistics see the April 1958 issue of
F:reiLn Trade Statistics Notes.

Only shipping weight data in terms of United States
port or coastal district of lading are shown for these
classes of shipments since information on the dollar value
of exports of Department of Defense controlled cargo is
not available at this level of detail. Consequently, the
total value figures shown in columns 15 and 18 of table 1
for dry cargo and tanker shipments in that order correspond
to the shipping weight figures shown in columns 4 and 9,
respectively, of the same table.

Vessel import figures, shown in columns 3, 6, 10 and
13 of table 2 and in table 4 of this report, are general
imports and represent the total of imports for immediate
consumption plus entries into customs bonded storage and
manufacturing 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 trans-
ports, and shipments covered by informal entries.

The following types of shipments are excluded from
both the vessel export and import data: (1I All shipments
of under $100 in value, regardless of shipping weight; (2)
shipments of household and personal effects; (3) shipments
by mail and parcel post; and (4) shipments c vessels under
their -,, pu cr and afloat. Trade between the United
States and its Possessions and trade between the Posses-
siono are not reported as United States e-rports and
imports.

Merchandise shipped in bond rr- r 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
merchandise cleared through customs and subsequently re-
exported is included in both the import and export statis-
tics). Separate information for the waterborne portion of
the in-transit trade in terms of shipping weight and dol-
lar value is presented in this report in tables 1 and 2.
Columns 6, 11, 17, and 20 of table 1 reflect in-transit
merchandise laden aboard vessels at United States ports,
while columns 4, 7, 11 and 14 of table 2 reflect such mer-
chandise unladen from vessels. The waterborne outbouun

and inbound in-transit statistics include: (1) Foreign
merchandise transferred from one vessel to another in the
United States port of arrival and shipped 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 'r,,i. rt.tion and export by vessel (such
merchandise was not recorded as an import when it entered
the warehouse), and (2) foreign merchandise shipped by
vessel from a United States Foreign Trade Zone to a for-
eign country (such merchandise is deposited in the Foreign
Trade Zone without being entered as an import). Any in-
bound or outbound in-transit merchandise moving by methods
of transportation other than vessel is excluded from the
in-transit statistics. Thus, in-transit merchandise arriv-
ing at the United States by vessel and leaving by some
other method of transportation is included in the inbound
data only. On the other hand, in-transit merchandise
arriving by other than waterborne transportation and laden
aboard vessels upon departure is included in the outbound
statistics but not in the inbound data. The inbound and
outbound segments, therefore, do not counterbalance 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 the February 1953 issue of the Foreign Trade
Statistics Notes.
All types of outbound vessel shipments in table 1 are
credited to the coastal districts, 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 table 3 are credited to the forei n
trade areas at which the merchandise was unlaeri. Vessel


imports in table 4 are credited to the foreign trade are'a
at which the merchandise was laden aboard the ve1s.i-
carrying the cargo to the United States. The countries: of
destination or origin of merchandise are not necessarily
located within the trade areas to which the merchandise i;
shipped or from which it is received. Detailed defini.tionrs
of foreign trade areas in terms of the countries and -orti
included in each are contained in Schedule R, Code Classi-
fication and Definition of Foreign Trade Areas.
Shipping weight figures represent the gross weight of
shipments, including the weight of containers, wrapping-,
crates and moisture content. Vessel export values repre-
sent the values at time and place of export. The;.' re
based on the selling price (or on the cost if not z.:l i
and include inland freight, insurance and other charge- to
place of export. Transportation and other costs be..rnd
the United States port of exportation are excluded. ''e-
sel import values, as well as the values for in-trair.i.
shipments, are generally based on the market or selliri
price and are in general f.o.b. the exporting country.
Since in-transit merchandise is not subject to the im. .i-
tion of import duties at the United States, the valuaioAn
reported for such shipments is not verified by custom_ tr.
the extent applicable in the case of import entries and rn, .
in some cases include transportation costs and insur-r,.e
to the United States as well as other cost elements.

Vessel shipments in tables 1 and 2 are classifi.:1 a
dry cargo or tanker shipments solely on the basis ol0 t I
type of vessel used without regard to the cargo carri-e.
Tanker vessels are those primarily designed for the .:r-
ri:;;e jf liquid cargoes in bulk,while all others are -I:-
sified as dry cargo vessels. A further segregation of' -r'
cargo vessel shipments is provided in tables 3 and *. r
the basis of type of service, i.e., liner (herth) or ir-
regular (tramp). Liner service is that type of se-,lice
offered by a regular line operator of dry cargo vessel- --n
berth. The itineraries and sailing schedules of such c:-
sels are predetermined and fixed. Irregular or tramp -
ice is that type of service afforded by dry cargo ve -y
which are chartered or otherwise hired for the carriage r'
goods on special voyages. Vessels in this type of se.' :-
are not on berth and their sailing schedules are not .r--
determined or fixed.
