Merchandise shipped in 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 col-
umns previously referred to (imported merchandise cleared through Customs and subsequently re-ex-
orted is included in both the import and export statistics). Separate information for the water-
orne portion of the in-traosit 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 11 of table 2 reflect such
merchandise unladen from vessels. The waterborne outbound and 'inbound in-transit statistics" in-
clude (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 Inited States port, shipped
through the United States under Custons 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also include (1) foreign merchandise withdrawn from a general order warehouse for immediate export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 im-
port when it entered the warehouse), and (2) foreign merchandise shipped via vessel from a Inited
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, mer-
chandise arriving 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, merchandise arriving by other than water-
borne transportation and laden aboard vessels upon departure is included in the outbound statis-
tics 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 ves-
sels to and from the United States. For a more detailed discussion of the in-transit trade sta-
tistics 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 tables 1 and 5 are credited to the coastal districts,
customs districts, and ports at which the merchandise was laden All types of inbound vessel ship-
ments in table 2 are credited to the coastal districts, customs districts, and ports at which mer-
chandise 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 con-
sumption.
Vessel exports in table 3 are creditedto the foreign trade areas at which the merchandise was
unladen. Vessel imports in table 4 are credited to the foreign trade areas at which the merchan-
dise was laden aboard the vessels carrying the cargo to the United States. The countries of des-
tination 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 Classifica-
tion 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 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 gen-
eral f.o.b. the exporting country. Since in-transit merchandise ris 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 extent applicable in the case of import entries and may in soP- 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 3-5
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 on special voyages. Vessels in this type of service are not on berth and their
sailing schedules are not predetermined or fixed.
