Zepol releases U.S. import review
Minneapolis-based trade intelligence company Zepol Corp. on Thursday released a report analyzing recent import trends for 29 major U.S. industry groups.
The report provides detailed information on three-digit North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes and compares import trends to previous years, as well as examining potential future developments.
The report found that for all NAICS codes, the average increase in U.S. import value over last year is 23 percent, while China supplies the most imports to the U.S., with $264 billion exported from January to September 2010, a 24 percent increase over 2009.
For each NAICS code, the review lists the top exporting countries to the United States, the top U.S. ports, detailed duty information, value trends for the previous two years, and transportation methods used.
