T.R.A.D.E., Inc. collects each month from US Customs the shipment records of all waterborne imports into the US. We publish this information each month on CD-ROM and in customized hard copy reports. US importers use our information to identify and qualify new international (non US) suppliers and look at the purchases of their US competitors. International exporters use T.R.A.D.E.'s products to identify and qualify new US customers and gather competitive intelligence.
