UNITED STATES FOREIGN TRADE


S Y REPORT CALENDAR YEAR 1957 FOR RELEASE

UNITED STATES WATERBORNE FOREIGN TRADE
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 20, 1958, rep-
resent the aggregate of transactions processed during
twelve monthly periods January-December 1957, incA,
some shipments unladen from and laden on vessels i
the latter part of 1956 and omitting some late lt ts
made during 1957 for which information was not l)giv, d in
time to be included in the statistical year figj ./ For
a fuller explanation of the differences between c sta-
tistical and calendar year figures see the J 1952 issue
of Foreign Trade Statistics Notes. e.-

During the period January-June 1956 the statistics on
export shipments of domestic and foreign merchandise'indi-
vidually valued at $100-$999 are estimated on the basis bf
a 10 percent sample of such shipments. Beginning with'J3ly
1956 the export shipments of domestic and foreign merchan--
dise individually valued at $100-$499 are estimated on the
basis of a 10 percent sample of such shipments. A discus-
sion of the low-value export shipments in the vessel sta-
tistics is contained in the November 1953 and February 1956
issues of the Foreign Trade Statistics Notes.

Effective with -statistics for January 1954, proce-
dures for estimating the shipping weight and value of im-
port shipments of under 2,000 pounds with a value of $100
or more were also instituted, based on a 2 percent random
sample of import documents. A discussion of the under
2,000 pound shipping weight import shipments in the vessel
statistics is contained in the March 1954 issue of Foreign
Trade Statistics Notes.
The waterborne statistics presented in the monthly
issues of this report for 1957 excluded the low-valued ex-
ports of domestic and foreign merchandise and non-Department
of Defense shipments of "special category" commodities
and import shipments of under 2,000 pounds regardless of
value as well as shipments valued at less than $100 re-
gardless of shipping weight. In order to provide users of
the vessel statistics with a series of comparable annual
data on a calendar year basis, this report shows in addi-
tion to the detail for the fully compiled export ad import
shipments, total figures (combining the sample estimate of
the 16w-value export shipments and the less than 2,000
pound import shipments of $100 or more in value with the
complete coverage segments for exports and imports) on a
United States port level and trade area level. These to-
tal figures for 1957, which include the estimates, 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,
S Puerto Rico and the Territories of Alaska and Hawaii) for
shipments to foreign countries and include export shipments
to United States civilian government agencies and non-
.. Department of Defense controlled foreign aid program ship-
mente as described below. Excluded from these figures are
ashiments to the United States armed forces abroad of sup-
ties and equipment for their own use as well as the other
p f, fS. 0 ahipmrents described below for which information
d. u ".~ d in separate columns in table 1.

Department of Defense controlled and "special cate-
gory" figures, shown in columns 7 and 12 of table 1 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 pro-
rams, i.e., Foreign Operations Administration,
Civilian Supply, etc., made aboard United
St s flag vessels such as Army-Navy transports
ercial vessels chartered by the Department
ense under time, voyage and space charter
ra events and including "special category'com-
Sdi es without distinction.
2. s erporj shipments of "special category" aom-
ies no controlled by the Department of De-
fe for whichh detailed information cannot be
s separately because of security reasons. For
explanation and list of "special category"
commodities and their presentation in foreign
trade statistics see the January 1954 issue of
Foreign 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 4, 7, 12 and
15 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: (1) 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 of vessels under
their own power and afloat. Trade between the United States
and its Territories and Possessions and trade between the
Territories and Possessions are 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 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 5, 8, 13 and 16 of table 2 reflect such mer-
chandise unladen from vessels. The waterborne outbound

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 transportation 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 foreign
trade areas at which the merchandise was unladen. Vessel


imports in table I, are credited 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 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 Classi-
fication and Definition of Foreign Trade Areas.
Shipping weight figures represent the gross weight of
shipments, including the weight of containers, wrappings,
crates and moisture content. Vessel export values repre-
sent 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. Ves-
sel 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 car-
riage of liquid cargoes in bulk,while all others are clas-
sified as dry cargo vessels. A further segregation of dry
cargo vessel shipments is provided in tables 3 and 4 on
the basis of type of service, i.e., liner (berth) or ir-
regular (tramp). Liner service is that type of senv se
offered by a regular line operator of dry cargo vessels on
berth. The itineraries and sailing schedules of such ves-
sels are predetermined and fixed. Irregular or tramp serv-
ice 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 pa-
determined or fixed.
