NE 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 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 in-
dividually valued at less than $500. For the
months January through June 1956, these statis-
tics exclude export shipments individually valued
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-4s less than $100 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-
tams area (continental United States, Puerto Rico
and the Territories of Alaska and Hawaii) for
shipment to foreign countries and include export
shipments to United States civilian Government
agencies 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 L
Department of Defense controlled and "spe-
I eal 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., Internation-
al Cooperation Administration, Army Ci-
vilian Supply, etc., made aboard United
States flag vessels such as Army-Navy
transports or commercial vessels char-
tered by the Department of Defense under
time, 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
1958 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 infor-
mation on the dollar value of exports of Depart-
ment of Defense controlled cargo is not available
at this level of detail. Consequently, the total
value figures shown in columns 12 and 15 of table
1 for dry cargo and tanker shipments in that or-
der 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-
part, 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 transports, 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 territories and pos-
sessions 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
reexported is included in both the import and ex-
port 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 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 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 Foreign Trade Statistics Notes.


All types
tables 1 and 5
tricts, customs


of outbound vessel shipments in
are credited to the coastal dis-
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 4 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 nec-
essarily 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 in-
cluded in each are contained in Schedule R, 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 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 imposition of import duties at the
United States, the valuation reported for muoh
shipments is not verified by customs to the ex-
tent applicable in the case of import entries a4.
may in some cases include transportation costs
and insurance to the United States as well a
other cost elements.
