Where does the data come from?
Our data contains import information from the bill of lading for shipments entering or leaving 56 countries. For the U.S., we get this shipping data for shipments entering the country by ocean directly from manifests, respecting price figures and personal name due to U.S. policy. This raw data is provided directly to us and consists of all available information on the bill of lading for each shipment entering a port via ocean and is considered public record. For the EU and other countries, we offer a mix of import and export data, for both air, sea, and land shipments.
