Import Genius provides global trade data, including imports into the United States and visual mapping of trade relations. Data points on imports include port, vessel, bill of lading, containers, carrier, codes, gross weight, and much more. Export data is available for some Latin American countries, including difficult-to-find pricing information like insurance and shipping for some exports. Data points are easily exported to Excel.
Import Genius may also be used to analyze a company’s supply chain. The visual mapping tool allows easy identification of a company’s key suppliers, as well as other companies buying from those same suppliers.
IMPORTANT: University of South Carolina students and faculty get free access to Import Genius. However, it requires registration with your USC email account.
