                                      Panjiva reports a February decline in U.S-bound waterborne shipments

                                      February data for United States-bound waterborne imports issued by Panjiva was notable but not necessarily in a positive sense. The company said February imports––at 837,700––marked an 8 percent annual decline, representing the first time there was not an annual increase since June 2016. February data also marked the first full month of import readings under the Trump administration, Panjiva noted.

In Philadelphia, the biggest increases were in goods from Chile, Panama, and Peru, said Christopher Rogers, an analyst with the firm.

There was also some evidence that operators were offloading return traffic from the UK to US in south-eastern ports such as Savannah before heading through the canal rather than north-east US ports.

The imports consisted heavily of generic drugs, and three-fifths of them came from India, although Eastern Europe has become an increasingly important supplier as Israeli and Swiss companies set up factories there.

                                                    Remember: America imports lots of everyday items. The top imports from China this year are cell phones and laptop computers, according to Panjiva, a firm that tracks global trade data. From Mexico, it’s cars.

                                                    One way retailers get people in stores is to limit supply. Hatchimals were one of the toys that retailers hedged by not ordering them by the shipping container. Many other retailers have held off on toy orders overall this year, waiting to see what would be popular, according to data from Panjiva.

                                                    2 powerful market forces could hurt Trump’s plans

                                                    And the dollar’s value hit a 13-year high recently, rising about 4% against the world’s most popular currencies just in the past three weeks. A strong dollar will be a challenge for U.S. manufacturers because it makes America’s exports, such as cars, more expensive and less attractive to foreign buyers.
                                                    “The stronger dollar is going to hurt U.S. manufacturers,” says Christopher Rogers, research analyst at Panjiva, a firm that tracks global trade data.

                                                    “This data really shows that trade is quite resilient to shocks, with the logistics sector doing an awesome job handling the Hanjin crisis, coupled with the possibility that some items that did not move in September moved in October,” said Panjiva Research Director Chris Rogers in an interview.

                                                    Companies should listen to the rising anti-trade fervor, Panjiva’s Josh Green writes, and advocate policies that meet the concerns. “The business community should also address the problems that emerge when people are buffeted by forces of trade beyond their control. This won’t come naturally to the business community, but it is critical that we advocate for policies that prepare and protect our people, not just our businesses.”

U.S. imports of the products in August were 41 percent lower from a year earlier, Panjiva data show. Worldwide, the drop was slightly smaller but still stark: Mexican exports fell 35 percent globally in the same time frame, the data show. At the same time, Mexican exporters are diversifying, sending only 74 percent of exports covered under the agreement to the U.S. in the first eight months of this year versus 83 percent the year before.

                                                    Panjiva noted that these numbers indicate how September is usually weaker than August, as well as there being a decline due to the Hanjin Shipping bankruptcy in early September, too. Among the factors driving September’s annual gains cited by Panjiva, included: iron and steel up 3.3 percent annually after 16 straight declines; home furnishings imports up 2.8 percent; and autos and parts imports up 1.4 percent.

                                                    Panjiva notes that wheat exports may be the area where U.S. farmers have the most to gain, and indeed the need for it. “Our data shows exports in the 12 months to July 31 fell 2% on a year earlier, despite an 18.8% recovery in the month of July,” the company states. “Ironically this includes a 163% increase in Chinese purchases, yet they still only accounted for 3.3% of U.S. exports in the past 12 months. Until late 2013 Chinese imports were 6.1 times higher those of the past 12 months, suggesting room for U.S. farmers to sell more under the right conditions.

As I would soon learn, we were not heading to a city where PVH is simply another major foreign customer. In recent years, PVH had become by far the largest buyer of the town’s specialty product, according to the Panjiva database, giving the Manhattan-based firm a profound degree of power over the fate of the Chinese city.

                                                    Clinton vs. Trump: Which Candidate Would Be Better for the Economy?

                                                    While you’d think the business world would overwhelmingly support one of their own, there’s a key reason why many of them would support Clinton. It’s not her policies, Josh Green, co-founder and CEO of Panjiva, a resource for global trade data and analysis, told the Fool via email. It’s her representing less of a change. “What the business community wants most from our political system is stability,” he said. “There’s a reason why so many business leaders are supporting Clinton — because, if she’s elected, it is very likely that our economic system will look much the same as it does today.” Green went on to explain that Trump has not helped his case with business leaders because he has openly talked about making large changes. “Trump represents uncertainty,” he said. “Would he actually rip up trade deals and unwind political alliances? If so, he may well throw our economic system into chaos by disrupting supply chains that have been built over decades. This uncertainty is terrifying to many in the business community — particularly those whose businesses operate internationally.”

                                                    Italian Wine Floods East Coast Ports, Lifting Import Volumes

                                                    The increase was driven in part by increased imports from Italy and France, especially for products including wine, furniture and tiles, mineral water and perfume, according to customs records analyzed by port data-tracking firm Panjiva. or example, New York’s port complex imported 2,570 TEUs of Italian wine in August, compared with 1,599 TEUs a year earlier, a difference of about 582,600 cases of wine. Chris Rogers, an analyst with Panjiva, attributed the rise to improved U.S. consumer confidence and the continued effects of a strong greenback.

                                                    Waterborne shipments rose by about 58% and volumes rose by 23% between Sept. 9 and Sept. 15 compared with the previous three weeks, according to data from Panjiva, a trade data company which tracks imports and exports. About half of the 10 gasoline shipments to the East Coast during the period were from the U.S. Gulf, Panjiva said.

                                                    As for where the U.S.-bound shipments originated, Panjiva cited growth from the European Union up 20.7 percent, which Panjiva said speaks to a sustained period of recovery that is partly drivren by weakness of the pound and the Euro. In the Asia-Pacific, Chinese exports to the U.S. fell 0.7 percent annually, and South Korea, which was impacted by Hanjin Shipping’s bankruptcy filing saw a 2.2 percent decrease. Japan was off 5.9 percent annually.“It looks like based on this data that the bulk of the U.S. economy is looking robust, with the same going from a consumer perspective, too,” said Panjiva Research Director Chris Rogers. “But even with U.S. consumers optimistic, they are not as optimistic as they previously were. It could be a pre-election thing but it is hard to say. We have had two good months in a row now, but that does not mean it stays that way going forward either.”

                                                    “From a retail perspective I’d look beyond the ‘my box of sweaters is stuck on a boat somewhere’ and focus on the mid-term,” said Christopher Rogers, research analyst at Panjiva, a global trade data and analytics company. “While September is a busy season, October is what really matters for the holidays. Arguably that’s plenty of time for people to make alternative arrangements.” While Rogers says the Hyundai deal can put things “back to normal by next week,” shipping rates have already jumped, “increasing retailers’ costs immediately.” There are alternatives. There are 17 shipping companies that have at least half the capacity or more of Hanjin, said Rogers.

                                                    Global trade volume only rose 0.1% in June compared to a year ago, according an analysis of government global trade data released Thursday by Panjiva, an analytics firm. It’s the lowest monthly gain since 2009. We’ve have some pretty clear signs that global trade has slowed down, says Chris Rogers, a research analyst at Panjiva. The numbers come a day before the U.S. Census releases data on July U.S. trade. American exports in June were down 5% from a year ago and its trade balance declined for the third straight month, Census data shows. Another region pulling down global trade is Latin America. Its total trade volume decreased in June too, Panjiva found.

But at the same time, Syngenta’s core business may be struggling, according to an analysis by global trade data company Panjiva. The seed company’s imports into the United States dropped 9.2 percent in the three months ending July 31, Panjiva data show, including an 18.5 percent decrease in July alone. Panjiva notes that’s consistent with the company’s 5 percent fall in North American revenues that the company saw in the first six months of this year. Organic chemicals lead Syngenta’s U.S. imports and fell 24.2 percent in July from the year before, Panjiva said.

                                                    Panjiva reports import growth is back on track in July

                                                    Panjiva said July’s import level marks the highest level for July going back to 2007. Imports seeing declines in July included imports from Japan down 8.7 percent and autos and auto parts, the largest import group by shipment, were down 0.9 percent. “What this data tells us is that the U.S. is outperforming the rest of the world,” said Panjiva Research Director Chris Rodgers. “Import prices continue to come down so the actual kind of published import number is not necessarily a reflection of the underlying economy, which is reasonably good at the moment. And from a political perspective, with the U.S. in an election year, more imports reflects a stronger economy which also means an increase in the trade deficit.”

And he discusses the prospects for future improvements in the nation’s balance of trade.

For this article, Panjiva pulled export data from the United States, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Chile. Venezuela likely gets food from other countries that were excluded from this analysis. Venezuelans “can’t buy bread and meat and all you can really get is cereals — the really, really basic stuff,” says Chris Rogers, a research analyst at Panjiva.

                                                    Pulling into harbor before dawn the day after Christmas, the Benjamin Franklin was stacked dizzyingly high with containers. Refrigerators, microwave ovens, rubber tires and girls shoes were among the haul of consumer goods wrapped inside, according to shipment data from Panjiva, which tracks companies involved in global trade. Nothing unusual for the port that processed $269 billion worth of goods, mostly from Asia last year.

                                                    Panama Canal expansion to bring benefits to PortMiami — slowly

                                                    Josh Green, chief executive of Panjiva, a New York-based trade data company, compares the effort to supersize the canal to the arrival of the iPhone 6 Plus: It’s needed to stay competitive, he said, but it’s hardly a game changer for world trade. In the same way that the original iPhone transformed the smartphone industry, the original canal radically changed world trade.

                                                    Based on Panjiva’s data, 2015 U.S. export goods was roughly $1.5 trillion, with its three largest trading partners, Canada, Mexico, and China, buying around $620 billion worth of products from the U.S. per year. So based on Trump’s disdain for NAFTA and China’s currency manipulation, Panjiva said Trump essentially would be “picking fights” with customers representing 41 percent of U.S. exports, which also includes TPP countries.

                                                    May shipments––at 954,000––saw a 10% jump over April and a 1.5% annual gain, which was boosted by furniture and auto parts imports, despite slow growth in China. This output marked the best ever month for May going back to 2007 based on Panjiva data, as well as its highest monthly shipment level since August 2015.

                                                    One tip comes from Josh Green, co-founder and CEO of Panjiva, a subscription-based service that provides freight and trade data on shipments moving across the globe. According to Green, organizations need to first identify the problem or business decision they want to focus on when tackling data analytics. “Work backward with the data,” Green said. Think about what decisions the supply chain or procurement organization already makes on a daily basis — things like determining what suppliers to source from or which ones to conduct a site visit with. Then, think about how, with more information, the organization could make that decision better or faster, Green said.

That’s the worst case scenario. But I suspect this is just a bump in the road, albeit a painful one. The reports of China’s rise were always a bit exaggerated, and I believe the reports of China’s demise are now being greatly exaggerated.”

                                      Panjiva Data Shows Lower Than Expected July Import Volumes

                                      Panjiva explained in a blog posting that while the U.S. economy saw relatively steady import growth through the first six months of 2015, July took a step back. And it added that July typically marks the beginning of holiday season imports, with average month-to-month growth resting in the 5-to-10 percent range.

                                      “After promising growth in June, I was surprised to see the shipment numbers for July,” explained Annelise McCarthy, Panjiva’s research director. “We were expecting to see month-over-month growth in the 5%-10% range, as July has been a peak month for holiday imports in the past couple of years. July’s 1% monthly growth is disappointing.”

                                      “One driver for the atypical May import gains centers on the recent resolution of the West Coast port labor dispute, which created turbulence on various levels, included delayed and held up shipments, and repositioning of supply chain distribution patterns by shippers, among others. Another factor is the less-than-stellar beginning to 2015 in terms of overall economic production, especially in the first quarter.

                                      Annelise McCarthy, head of Panjiva’s customer success team, said in an interview that the low April shipment levels, when compared to the stronger shipment levels in May, looks like ‘course correcting’ at this point, coupled with signs of improving market growth in the form of things like increased order activity.”

Meanwhile, shipments of actual tobacco—you know, the carcinogenic stuff that kill you—have actually been on the rise…import data clearly does not tell the whole story. But it may give us advanced warning of a pending slowdown. If anything, the soaring U.S. dollar should have caused a nice bump in shipment imports, which clearly has not happened.

Based on our analysis, ‘Frozen’ is set to be the clear winner of the 2014 holiday season.'”

All of these movies have one thing in common: each was based on a comic series or toy originally intended for children or young adults. As such–like Disney cartoon movies–all are uniquely well positioned to benefit from merchandise and toy sales.”

In addition to optimism, a few other themes emerged – notably, concern about rising manufacturing costs and an interest in exploring Africa as a sourcing destination.

It will certainly have enough cash to give it a go, but cash alone cannot buy success on the global stage. To succeed, Alibaba will have to articulate a global vision, build a global management team, successfully compete on a global playing field that is a bit more level than China’s — and, perhaps most importantly, solve the trust problem.”

But even with this change Green said it is too early to see if a new pattern will emerge in regards to this development. ‘It was surprising last year but could be tied to when Chinese New Year fell,’ he said. ‘But if the pattern holds true again this year, it is worth digging in to see if there is a reason why March would be the new low point.'”

The one lingering concern, though, is about political wildcards, so we have actually hit a relatively stable stretch when it comes to U.S. budget politics, and we have not seen as much turmoil linger. But there is a concern that political issues could return and what is happening in the Ukraine shows how political instability can pop up quickly.'”

    “Panjiva, a company that tracks shipments of giant cargo containers into the U.S., says that from August to October, the months when stores stock up for the Christmas gift-giving season, items based on both of those shows arrived in droves, mostly from China and Hong Kong.

    “‘Typically what we see, and what this year’s data suggests, is that retailers take a portfolio approach to toys,’ Panjiva chief executive Josh Green said in a statement.’They heavily stock known, reliable toys they feel confident will sell, and then they also place smaller bets on newer toys that don’t yet have a proven sales track record but that they anticipate will be atop children’s wish lists. Sofia the First is one of the biggest bets they’ve made in recent years. This shows optimism, but the diversified approach is a reminder retailers are always keen to reduce the risk of being stuck ringing in the new year with surplus supply.'”

    Potential Toy Shortage Could Dampen Holiday Fun

    “Big chains such as Target, Wal-Mart and Toys R Us said they should be sufficiently stocked, but as of November 1, toy shipments from July to November to the United States were down 2 percent, compared with 2012, according to Panjiva, which tracks the data. That follows an almost 10 percent drop in 2012.”

Over the last decade or so, the Chinese manufacturing base developed a capabilities advantage that is proving to be durable and as a result people are finding it harder than they thought to go elsewhere as the capabilities they have come to rely on in China’s manufacturing base are not there in other countries and appears to be going strong and looks like it will continue for some time.’”

    Panjiva Reports Decline in Global Trade Activity From August to September

    “‘It appeared in looking at that data earlier in the year leading up to holiday season that it would have suggested that businesses weren’t feeling particularly confident about what the holiday season had in store for us,’ said Green. ‘But in looking at these numbers, what they seem to suggest is that it is not so much of a slowdown as a shift to later orders. What seems to be the case is that [shippers] held off as long as they could in making their buying decisions, hoping there would be more clarity about where the economy is headed. And as a result we are seeing shipments coming later in the year relative to what we have seen in the past.'”
