April shipments at 950,408 saw a 9.7% gain on an annual basis, which Panjiva said represents the fastest rate of growth going back to February 2016, and comes on the heels of a 8.7% annual gain in April that led to a 17.3% annual increase in the U.S. trade deficit.

The theme for the 2015 holiday season in terms of holiday season import cargo volumes could well be “holding steady,” according to the most recent edition of the Global Port Tracker report from the National Retail Federation (NRF) and maritime consultancy Hackett Associates.

As evidenced by the widening gap in the United States trade deficit, which has seen imports far outpacing exports for years on end, the September edition of the “Global Trade Pulse” from global maritime and trade consultancy Hackett Associates paints a similar picture for trade activity in North America, with some overlapping themes apparent in the report’s European data, too.

According to Panjiva data, July shipments-at 952,126-were up 1 percent over June, following sequential gains of 7 percent for May over April and 1 percent for June over May.
By Jeff Berman · August 3, 2015
Panjiva said that the 1 percent sequential growth was in line with typically flat growth from May to June, as higher monthly growth typically takes hold in July and August in advance of the holiday season.

As was the case in April, data from Panjiva, an online search engine with detailed information on global suppliers and manufacturers, issued this week did not stick to its typical theme of flat or slight growth from April to May. Instead, it saw a fairly significant gain.
