In July we started a new series entitled “World Trade Center Spotlight”. Written and edited by Louisa Avery, each spotlight focuses on one of the 300+ World Trade Centers belonging to the WTCA, across the world. Ideally, World Trade Centers epitomize what Trade Intelligence is all about: blending data, services, facilities, network, resources and people in order to better facilitate international trade. Combined these WTCs boast of almost 1 million member companies. Here are the ones spotlighted in July:
- World Trade Center Spotlight: WTC Utah
- World Trade Center Spotlight: Philadelphia
- World Trade Center Spotlight: Edmonton
They’ll be more to come in August.
In conjunction with one of the WTC Spotlights on Utah, we uncovered some interesting information on the state in the following articles:
- Utah Only State to Double Exports Over the Last Five Years
- Does Utah have the Midas Touch? Gold Exports & Reserves
We also launched another new series entitled, “Trade Reports” in which we employ data and reports generated in part from the Prospects and StatsPlus TI Applications originally developed by CenTradeX and later acquired by PIERS/UBM Global Trade last year, as well as other sources. During the inaugural launch of this series in the third week in July, we focused on our region, Tennessee, and the Medical Equipment sector as well as other related data stories.
- Trade Report: Tennessee Export Profile – Medical Equipment Leads
- Trade Report: Metro Nashville International Trade Profile – What the Data Reveals
- Trade Report: Baxter Healthcare Tennessee – Importer Profiling Through Data
- Trade Report: U.S. Medical Equipment Exports; U.S. Sellers & Foreign Buyers
- Trade Report: Connecting the “Invisible Dots” between U.S. Importer and Foreign Supplier
Another series we began in July was the WTD Editorial, based upon questions posed by our readers with questions such as: “How does WorldTradeDaily.com differ from other International Trade Information sites?”; “I’m trying to decide between several Trade Intelligence Providers products, which do you think provides the most accurate information?”; “What is the U.S. Market like for TI products?” and “Where can I obtain the U.S. Customs Waterborne Import Manifest Data?”
- WTD Editorial: The Differences Between WTD Versus Other Trade Sites
- WTD Editorial: Starting Up a New Company to Sell U.S. Customs Data
- WTD Editorial: The Original “Letter to Stakeholders” and Launch of WorldTradeDaily.com
- WTD Editorial: Who Will Win the Prospect? PIERS, Datamyne or Zepol? This one has been the all time (over the last 90 days) most viewed article ever.
In World Trade Daily – Month In Review for July – Part 2 we will list the other articles appearing within the month for easy reference.
