1. Are Free Customs Data Useful?

In the current market, customs data come in two varieties: paid and free. As far as Tendata is aware, many customs data companies claim to have developed a free customs data system, but their core objective is to attract traffic and profit through secondary marketing.

In the current state of the industry, free customs data is primarily superficial public data. In this age of data, valuable information cannot be free. Tendata Data suggests it's better to spend money to purchase it, as Jack Ma once said, "Free is actually the most expensive." (>>> Click to get free customs data from 91 countries.)

2. Customs Data Ineffective? You Might Not Be Using It Right

Many customers often feel that customs data is ineffective or that they're only using a small portion of it when working with import and export data. Tendata Data would like to reiterate the eight major functions of customs data for the benefit of our foreign trade enterprises:

You can find all of these functions in customs data (>>> Click to access sample data online). If you can find them, you're a qualified data user. In addition to this, Shanghai Tendata's Foreign Trade Big Data Business Radar helps foreign trade enterprises manage potential customers online in real-time, understand customer needs, and assists foreign trade personnel in accurately searching for foreign trade customer emails, sending mass emails, producing email reports, and solving email sending dilemmas.

3. Customs Data ≠ Foreign Trade Data; Having Customs Data Alone Is Not Enough

Customs data inquiries include trade transaction data publicly available from customs around the world. This data consists of customs statistical bill-type information. However, what Tendata Company refers to as foreign trade big data goes far beyond mere customs data.
