New trade data field offers US$ value of shipments with breakouts by HS tariff code
MIAMI – November 20, 2014 – Datamyne has added a key field to its US import bill-of-lading trade data: the calculated value in US dollars of the cargos received at US ports.
The newest data field is in addition to the current 52 fields of information offered for each shipment bill of lading, including the names and addresses of parties to the transactions, origins and destinations of shipments, volumes and descriptions of products shipped.
Subscribers to Datamyne’s Premium US Import data can get access to the calculated US$ value of total shipments as well as current quantitative measures of volume (TEUs, Metric Tons, etc.) when they choose the bases for ranking results of their database searches.
Calculated values are also on individual bills of lading which can be accessed for the details of single transactions. Each bill includes a total value and a break-out of value by product.
Datamyne calculated values are derived from US Census Bureau data, which is based on transaction records and generally reflects prices paid (based on CIF value) for goods exported to the US.
“Calculated values offer a critical dollar-denominated metric for evaluating the commercial activities of parties to US import trade – from individual shippers and consignees to country and regional markets,” says Brendan McCahill, Datamyne’s CEO. “Now our users will be better able to identify high-value as well as high-volume trade flows – and sharpen their assessments of prospective customers, suppliers and markets.”
Datamyne is offering complimentary online demonstrations of its enhanced US import data. To schedule a demonstration go to www.datamyne.com/demo_request.html.
