    How Government Data is Fueling a New Economy

    “Much of Panjiva’s strategic advantage, co-founder Josh Green says, lies in the long hours it’s willing to put in to acquire and parse through this far-from-fully open data, an effort its competitors aren’t willing to undertake. One sign of their success: The U.S. Customs and Border Protection bureau is now a Panjiva customer, essentially buying back its own data in a cleaned up form.”

    “‘While people have been talking about it for years, it’s clear that we are finally on the path to economic recovery, yet those involved in global trade still have some warranted concerns,’ noted Josh Green, CEO of Panjiva. ‘The rising costs of manufacturing will create inflationary pressure and lead sourcing executives to seek out new regions where they can find lower costs.’”

    “The number of global manufacturers shipping to the U.S in December—at 136,437—was down 5 percent from November to December and was down 3 percent compared to December 2012. ‘This data looks pretty good,’ said Panjiva CEO Josh Green in an interview. ‘For 2013, we ended up 6 percent higher than 2012 in terms of total shipments, and that is pretty healthy growth, which may suggest the economic recovery continues to gain steam.’”

    Traders Optimistic, but Concerned About Rising Wages

    “With rising wages being a concern, many say they are actively looking for suppliers outside China. ‘Though buyers have expressed interest in sourcing in new geographies, it’s not clear that they can quickly shift away from more expensive, established manufacturing markets,’ Panjiva said. It noted that 17 percent of the buyers it surveyed indicated that they sourced in Bangladesh and that of those, a third had shifted sourcing away from Bangladesh in the past 12 months.”

    For Hot Toys, Sale-Watching is Like Playing Stock Market

    “January inventory numbers are not yet available, but Josh Green, Panjiva’s founder and CEO, predicts that those numbers will jump. Prices, however, won’t necessarily go down, he cautions. ‘The really dangerous spot for retailers is when your competitors are able to restock and satisfy demand. But if everyone had trouble, chances are there will still be demand when Furby finally arrives,’ Green says.”

    Disney Junior Toys in Line for Big Christmas

    “Panjiva, a company that tracks shipments of giant cargo containers into the U.S., says that from August to October, the months when stores stock up for the Christmas gift-giving season, items based on both of those shows arrived in droves, mostly from China and Hong Kong. Panjiva says 521 cargo containers stuffed with Doc McStuffins gear landed in the U.S. during those months while 364 containers arrived with Sofia the First items. Those totals were enough to land both those properties in Panjiva’s expected top 10 list of toys for the season.”

    This Year’s Hit Holiday Toy? Princess Sofia the First Predicted

    “‘Typically what we see, and what this year’s data suggests, is that retailers take a portfolio approach to toys,’ Panjiva chief executive Josh Green said in a statement.’They heavily stock known, reliable toys they feel confident will sell, and then they also place smaller bets on newer toys that don’t yet have a proven sales track record but that they anticipate will be atop children’s wish lists. Sofia the First is one of the biggest bets they’ve made in recent years. This shows optimism, but the diversified approach is a reminder retailers are always keen to reduce the risk of being stuck ringing in the new year with surplus supply.’”

Over the last decade or so, the Chinese manufacturing base developed a capabilities advantage that is proving to be durable and as a result people are finding it harder than they thought to go elsewhere as the capabilities they have come to rely on in China’s manufacturing base are not there in other countries and appears to be going strong and looks like it will continue for some time.’”

    Hand Sanitizer Spread Faster Than the Flu

    “The big exception was 2009, when the swine-flu outbreak prompted sales to spike to $301 million. ‘We would have to see something pretty dramatic for hand sanitizers to reach those levels again,’ says Josh Green, CEO of Panjiva, a company that tracks imports of consumer products…Should this flu season get much worse, experts say, there could end up being a sanitizer shortage too, as production has tapered off. ‘If we’re still in the early stages of the spread, we’re certainly going to find that there aren’t enough hand sanitizers on hand,’ Green says.”

In speaking with customers, Panjiva learned that many were using the service to do research on suppliers. But they would then have to hunt for additional insight across various sources, from contact information to product details and catalog information. In order to build an offering in this market, Panjiva enriched its own database by crawling some seven million web pages to build its content.”

For Panjiva, that means making global trade more efficient and more transparent. ‘There is a future where information is consolidated and accessible to people making key decisions, from a buying or regulatory standpoint,’ he said. ‘Once that happens — and we’re close — there’s potentially a place where there’s a race to the top instead of the bottom, in terms of supply chain records. That will make a difference when you’re under scrutiny. Right now, the fragmentation of data is the ally of bad behavior. Our hope is to change that reality.’”

What seems to be the case is that [shippers] held off as long as they could in making their buying decisions, hoping there would be more clarity about where the economy is headed. And as a result we are seeing shipments coming later in the year relative to what we have seen in the past.’”

We have mixed messages in terms of where the macro economy is headed, which is nothing new. It is possible we are seeing softness in global trade in response to global macro economic conditions.’”

    Guinness Shipments to U.S. Soar 244 Percent

    “U.S. imports of Guinness stout bounced back ahead of St. Patrick’s Day from unusually low levels a year ago, when U.S. consumers still had a post-recession hangover… ‘It looks like there will be plenty of Guinness on hand at St. Patrick’s Day celebrations,’ said Josh Green, CEO of Panjiva, which tracks international trade data. That could reflect increased consumer confidence, or, ‘It may simply be indicative of renewed confidence about consumer willingness to drink,’ Green said.”

    Panjiva: Stout Shipments Surge as St. Patrick’s Day Draws Nigh

    “When times are tough, St. Patrick’s Day celebrants content themselves with swilling low-rent green beer, but when the good times roll, they’re inclined to order a stout — a Guinness perhaps. If stout consumption is a leading economic indicator, there now may be additional anecdotal evidence that the US economy is on the upswing. According to a firm called Panjiva Inc., there’s recently been nearly a 25 percent increase in stout shipments to the United States.”

For suppliers, this includes contact details, a list of customers, products shipped, shipment statistics in both weight and volume and the most recent credit reports that are available through Panjiva’s affiliate partners. For customers, the company profile shows similar information but related to orders received into the US. A neat function in the company profile is the use of the tag cloud, which visually represents the frequency of your product search term in the supplier’s shipments.”

It is somewhat of a chicken-and-egg problem: a go-to sourcing destination beyond China hasn’t emerged, but part of the cause for that is that companies haven’t had to make moves in a very long time and in many cases, simply don’t have the know-how to do it.”
