WATERBORNE FOREIGN TRADE


This report presents statistics on total United
States waterborne inbound and outbound shipments
made in foreign trade, with the exception of such
elements as are specified below.


Effective January 1963 the statistics on water-
borne exports of domestic and foreign merchandise
and non-Department of Defense shipments of "spe-
cial category" commodities exclude shipments to
Canada individually valued at less than $2,000
and shipments to other countries individually
valued at less than $500. From July 1953 through
December 1955 and July 1956 through December 1962
these statistics exclude all shipments individ-
ually valued at less than $500. For the months
January through June 1956 these statistics exclude
all shipments individually valued at less than
$1,000.


From January 1954 through December 1957 vessel
import figures exclude shipments .having a ship-
ping 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 is
less than $100 regardless of shipping weight.


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 for shipment to foreign countries andinclude
export shipments to United States civilian Govern-
ment agencies and non-Department of Defense con-
trolled 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 information 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 tables 5 and 6 of this report cover
consolidated data for the following types of
shipments:
1. Vessel export shipments of Department
of Defense controlled cargo under spe-
cial foreign aid programs such as De-
partment of Defense Military Assistance
Program--Grant-Aid, etc., shipped on
commercial or military vessels (vessels
owned and operated by Department of
Defense).


2. Vessel export shipments of "special
category" commodities not controlled by
the Department of Defense for which
detailed information cannot be shown
separately because of security reasons.
For an explanation and list of "special
category" commodities and their pres-
entation in foreign trade statistics
see January 1965 issue of FT 410.


Only shipping weight data in terms of United States
port or coastal district of lading and foreign
trade area of unlading 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 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 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 transports, and ship-
ments covered by informal entries.

The following types of shipments are excluded from
both the vessel export and import data: (1) ship-
ments of household and personal effects,(2) ship-
ments 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 possessions 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 import
is not included in any of the figures in the
columns previously referred to (imported merchan-
dise cleared through Customs and subsequently
re-exported is included in both the import and
export statistics). Separate information for the
waterborne portion of the in-transit trade interms
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 merchandise trans-
ferred 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 mer-
chandise 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 ware-
house for immediate export by vessel orfor trans-
portation 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 in-
bound 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 thesedataseethe 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 merchan-
dise was laden. All types of inbound vessel ship-
ments in table 2 are credited to the coastal dis-
tricts, 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 tables 3 and 6 are credited to
the foreign trade areas at which the merchandise
was unladen. Vessel imports in table 4 are cred-
ited 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 included
in each are contained in Schedule R, Code Class-
ification 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 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
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 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
3-6 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 carriagej ofgoods on special voyages.
Vessels in this type of service are not on berth
and their sailing schedules are not predetermined
or fixed.

BUSINESS CYCLE DEVELOPMENTS is published monthly for specialists concerned with the analysis of current business
conditions. It summarizes many of the available economic time series in convenient form for short-term evaluation and interpretation
and supplements other Department of Commerce reports on the economy. The features of this report are:
The arrangement of series according to their usual timing relations during the course of the business cycle.
The inclusion of special analytical measures and historical cyclical comparisons that help in
evaluating the current stage of the business cycle.
The speed with which the data are collected, assembled, and published. BCD is issued about the
22 d of each month covering data for the preceding month.
About 90 principal indicators and over 300 components are used for the different measures shown. The movements of the series are
shown against the background of the expansions and contractions of the general business cycle so that "leads" and "lags" can
readily be detected and unusual cyclical developments spotted. Since almost all of the basic data presented in this report are
available in other published sources, the value of BCD lies in its analytical arrangement and speed of publication.
The presentation and classification of the time series in the BCD report fo;iows the business indicators approach. The classifica-
tion of series and the business cycle turning dates are those designed by the National Bureau of Economic Research which, in recent
years, has been a leader in this field of investigation.
For sale by the Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402. $6 a year ($1.50 additional for foreign mailing). Single copies, 600 each.
