Customs import and export data records the company name, mailbox, freight, quantity and price, port and other fields of the two parties of the transaction. It plays an important role in finding potential high-quality customers, analyzing the foreign trade market, and determining the target market. So what are the specific fields in the data? What commercial value can these fields bring us? The following are some fields to analyze, let's take a look! Supplier The supplier is the consignor in the transaction bill of lading. Their products which are similar to ours, and try their best to tap our customers, in fact, they are competitors. Compared with the previous, invisible and intangible competitors, these competitors now really exist in the customs data, appearing as a supplier. Their transaction data, cooperation customers, supply markets, and trade areas can all be obtained from customs data. The next step is to see how you can use the data. Amount o f Money First of all, get the customs data of similar products around the world, and master the demand, transaction price, market conditions and other information of your products around the world. Using these data information, you can understand the customer's monthly purchase volume, procurement ranking in the industry, and what suppliers are available ... If you combine the supply volume and the transaction price to analyze, you can roughly estimate the price this customer really could bear. Quantity / weight Through quantitative statistics, you can analyze the total purchase of a certain type of product in the industry market, the purchase volume of target customers, the shipment of peers, etc., understand the production scale and market share of competing peers which are mainly used for production planning and market analysis. Import and export of the port The first is the port of shipment (loading port). According to this field, we can analyze the loading volume of a certain commodity in each port of the country of origin, and we know where the commodity is concentrated. If you are a trading company, will you use this port information to purposely find manufacturers in the corresponding areas? The second is the port of unloading, which is a field that is often overlooked. Some buyers purchase a lot of goods, and after the goods are shipped to the country, they are distributed from the port to various cities, and the transportation costs can be imagined. By analyzing the ports in the country where the goods are unloaded more, the port of discharge can be used as a key target for regional development, starting with cities and regions around the port. Arrival date Analyze the arrival date of imports and exports. For countries, you can analyze the demand for a certain type of goods in different countries and regions and at different times, so as to determine when the peak and low seasons of procurement in different countries and regions are. For companies, you can learn when the company has a large purchase volume and when the purchase volume is small. Contact information Finally, let ‘s talk about the field of contact information. In fact, the biggest value of customs data is not data such as customer mailboxes and phone numbers. When buying and using customs numbers, many foreign trade friends often measure the quality and value of customs data by whether the data contains company contact information. In fact, such a judgment is wrong. I believe that seeing the description of these fields above, we can find that the various data contents of the customs data can help us reduce a lot of detours during the development process. These are the highest value of customs data. Why do say that? For example, some customs data service providers can cater to our needs. After getting the original customs data, we can carry out post-processing and use some foreign exhibition buyers ‘lists, or use some foreign yellow pages and search engine tools, crawl some contact information to match the data of the corresponding company. Then sell it to us at a high price. Imagine the value of such matched email information and the vast majority of buyers' contact information, and we can use search engines, Google tools, social media platforms to search for the buyer's official website etc., to obtain true and accurate contact information. There are many fields, so I won't go into details here. To sum up, customs data records are the records of every transaction that actually happened, and foreign trade companies can target customers based on these trade data and field information. It saves us the energy and time to find customer information and transaction data everywhere, and improves the efficiency of developing customers; we can also use the data to grasp the basic purchase situation of customers, including relevant information such as import volume and price, so that we can be targeted and comfortable when communicating, improving the effectiveness of developing customers.
