Trade Data Service provides analysis of trends and outlook for global merchandise by air, sea as well as land-based modes such as road and rail. Merchandise – also known as visible trade – includes manufactured goods, fuel and mining products and agricultural goods. Trade Data Service is maintained by Trade and Transport Group, a Sydney based transportation strategy consulting and research firm.

We provide a mix of regular as well as topic specific content and data, including:

  • Weekly articles on special topics, individual country, lane or transport mode specific developments
  • Regular discussion of market indicators and their impact on trade flows and modal impacts
  • An annual trade forecast
  • A global interactive commodity and country level trade dashboard to allow users to analyse historical trade patterns and developments

Our contributors are exceptional analysts and have deep professional experience across trade analysis, export development, air cargo, shipping, rail and road. We aim to provide insights, not breaking news.  

Trade Data Service offers monthly or annual single user subscriptions options, as well as corporate licenses. Articles can also be purchased individually. 

We are sitting on a growing mountain of trade, economic and other market data that can be used to support commodity, port and transport mode level market analysis, trade development and to drive asset investments and infrastructure planning. Trade Data Service showcases some our research and data. For customised analysis, forecasts and databases, please contact us.
