Customs data refers to the import and export transaction data recorded by customs authorities worldwide. It primarily comes from authentic documents such as customs declarations, bills of lading, and inspections. Known for its authority, accuracy, comprehensiveness, timeliness, and thoroughness, this data serves as the most direct basis for a country to monitor international trade changes and formulate trade policies. Simultaneously, it acts as an efficient and precise resource for enterprises conducting market research, international market development, and foreign trade business operations.
