A'IPR o 195a UNITED STATES FOREIGN TRADE


Y REP T O 7 FOR RELEASE
OCT 1957March 17, 1958

WATERBORNE FOREIGN TRADE STATISTICS

COVERAGE

This report presents statistics on total United States waterborne inbound and outbound ship-
ments made in foreign trade, with the exception 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" commodities exclude shipments individually valued at less than $500. For the months
January through June 1956, these statistics exclude export shipments individually valued at less
than $1,000. Since January 1954, vessel import figures exclude shipments having a shipping weight
of less than 2,000 pounds, irrespective of value, as well as shipments valued at less than $100,
irrespective of shipping weight. For the effect of the exclusion of such merchandise on the export
and import vessel shipping statistics, see the February and March 1954 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 foreign merchandise laden at the United States Customs
area (continental United States, Puerto Rico and the Territories of Alaska and Hawaii) for ship-
ment to foreign countries and include export shipments to United States civilian Government agen-
cies and non-Department of Defense 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 described below for which in-
formation is shown in separate columns in table 1.
Department of Defense controlled and "special category" figures, shown in columns 6 and 11
of table 1 and in table 5 of 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 programs, i.e., International Cooperation 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" commodities without distinction.
2. Vessel export shipments of "special category" commodities not controlled by the Depart-
ment of Defense for which detailed information cannot be shown separately because of se-
curity reasons. For an explanation and list of "special category" commodities and their
presentation in foreign trade statistics see the January 1954 issue of Foreign Trade
t 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 Depart-
ment of Defense controlled cargo is not available at this level of detail. Consequently, the to-
tal value figures shown in columns 12 and 15 of table 1 for dry cargo and tanker shipments in that
order correspond 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 en-
tries into customs bonded storage and manufacturing warehouses made at the United States Customs
S area -from foreign countries. Vessel import figures exclude American goods returned by the United
i Sltes armed forces for their own use, import shipments on Army or Navy transports, and shipments
S covered by informal entries.

The following types of shipments are excluded from both the vessel export and iWprt data:
(1) Shipments of household and personal effects, (2) shipments by mail and parcel p~t~l .d )d3)
shipments of vessels under their own power and afloat. United States trade with 0-1eo Rico end
with United States territories and possessions is not reported as United States experts and imports.'
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 fjtagres tin th1 c4l
unns previously referred to (imported merchandise cleared through Customs and eubequenily 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 pre |
sented in this report in tables 1 and 2. Columns 5, 10, 14 and 17 of table 1 reflect "in-transi
merchandise laden aboard vessels at United States ports, while columns 4, 7, 10 and'13 ef tq~le 1
reflect such merchandise unladen frdm vessels. The waterborne outbound and inbound' i-k.afrI
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 cus-
tody 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 ves-
sel 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 merchandise 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 transportation 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 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 the Febru-
ary 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 in.e
diate consumption.
Vessel exports in table 3 are credited to 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 ner-
chandise was laden aboard the vessels 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 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 Clas-
sification and Definition of Foreign Trade Areas.
Shipping weight figures represent the gross weight of shipments, includ gL the weight of aw"
trainers, wrappings, crates and-moisture content. Vessel export values represent the value at:
timt and place of export. They are based on the selling price (or on the cost if not sold)...
include inland freight, insurance and other charges to place of export. Transportation adit4 e
costs beyond the United States port of exportation are excluded. Vessel import values, as Wei. M"
the values for in-transit shipments, are generally based on the market or selling price and are i
general f.o.b. the exporting country. Since in-transit merchandise is not subject to the 1i ..a
tion of import duties at the United States, the valuation reported for such shipment s s not- n'-
fied by customs to the extent applicable in the case of import entries and may in some ages i*.
elude 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 J
the basis of the type of vessel used without regard to the cargo carried. Tanker vessels ae;
primarily designed for the carriage of liquid cargoes in bulk, while all others are clasuaeified 4:.
dry cargo vessels. A further segregation of dry cargo vessel shipments is provided in tables
on the basis of type of service, i.e., liner (berth) or irregular (tramp). Liner service in:
type of service offered by a regular line operator of dry cargo vessels on berth. The itinaera
and sailing schedules of such vessels are predetermined and fixed. Irregular or tramp servl0@i
that type of service afforded by dry cargo vessels which are chartered or otherwise hired fart
carriage of goods on special voyages. Vessels in this type of service are not on berth and
sailing schedules are not predetermined or fixed.
