Zepol 2009 Citrus Import/Export Report

An Expert's View about Major Exports in the United States

Last updated: 2 Jun 2010

Zepol has compiled a new report illustrating imports and exports for the U.S. Citrus industry. We derived all of this information from our trade data tools, TradeIQ and TradeView.

Global intelligence that moves your business. The Year in Review: 2009 Citrus Import/Export Report www.zepol.com /E About our Import xport Report of the Citrus Industry: As the most innovative and advanced U.S. trade information provider to the international trade community, Zepol has created this report of the citrus industry for importers, suppliers, transportation companies, and other parties interested in the citrus industry for the United States market. The report provides a better understanding of where the U.S. citrus market has been in 2009 and where it is going in 2010 and the future. We list information for all of the 10-digit HTS Codes (Harmonized Tariff System Codes) for all of the related products under HTS Code 0805. Each import and export code is examined to show the latest trends for these products and compared with the totals by value to the previous 12 months. For import HTS Codes, we provide key importers of the products to show a company level perspective. All data was retrieved using Zepol?s trade data tools, TradeIQ? and TradeView?. These products are subscription services for the international trade arena. Subscribers have access to additional information for each product, port, and importer at both a transactional and aggregate level. Data is reported as it has been released by government sources. In many cases, multiple sources will not show data that correlates. Most of these cases are accounted for because of how products arrive in the United States and the manner in which the U.S. government records shipment data. Importer and supplier listings are sourced from U.S. Customs data from Zepol?s TradeIQ?. These lists consist of information that estimates which importers and suppliers are actively importing products through U.S. Ports along with their associated volumes. This data is limited to containerized shipments, but may include some bulk cargoes. Some active consignees and shippers may not be listed; please see the ?Report Note? on page 3 for more information. The majority of the data contained in the profiles for each 10-digit HTS Code has been sourced from U.S. Census trade statistics from Zepol?s TradeView?. All trends and information are presented as the U.S. Census Bureau has released the data to the public. Value represents general imports as assessed by U.S. Customs, or the price actually paid or payable, excluding U.S. import duties, freight, insurance, and other charges. Records show the number of times that the specified HTS Code has been listed on shipping documents. Zepol hopes that the information in this report will be informative and help your organization plan for 2010 by fully understanding your market. www.zepol.com Page 2 Report Note: This report is based on data collected from the U.S. Census Bureau on a monthly- basis and it is subject to data anomalies present in the data set. Because of this collection method, some data will show imports for consignees and shippers into the United States which were actually transshipments. For example, a Canadian company?s imports to Canada could be reported as U.S. imports because of how U.S. Customs collects the data from shipping lines. U.S. Customs allows importers to conceal the identity of their shipments. Thus, not all major importers and suppliers will be listed for specific HTS Codes and within the lists of consignees and shippers. This data represents the information as it is recorded by U.S. Customs. It may overstate totals from transshipments and may include other data anomalies. www.zepol.com Page 3 2009 Trade Activity HTS ? 0805 Citrus Fruit, Fresh or Dried Import Product Categories HTS Code 2009 Value 2008 Value Ch Records ange Records Change 0805.10.0040 Oranges, Fresh Or Dried, Nesoi $92,901,151 $71,231,284 30.42% 3,233 52.00% 0805.20.0020 Tangerines, Fresh Or Dried $4,876,153 $3,724,760 30.91% 387 -7.86% 0805.20.0060 Clementines, Fresh Or Dried, Nesoi $130,436,391 $134,281,310 -2.86% 3,050 10.07% 0805.20.0080 Mandarins (including Satsumas), Wilkings And Similar Citrus Hybrids, Fresh Or Dried, Nesoi $20,762,831 $19,632,937 5.76% 700 4.01% 0805.40.4000 Grapefruit, Fresh Or Dried, If Entered During The Period From August 1 To September 30, Inclusive, In Any Year $226,053 $352,153 -35.81% 13 62.50% 0805.40.6000 Grapefruit, Fresh Or Dried, If Entered During The Month Of October $299,311 $234,510 27.63% 6 -25.00% 0805.40.8000 Grapefruit, Fresh Or Dried, Entering During The Period From November 1 To July 31, Of The Following Year, Inclusive $1,405,182 $1,471,800 -4.53% 49 40.00% 0805.50.2000 Lemons (citrus Limon, Citrus Limonum) Fresh Or Dried $27,359,137 $24,768,578 10.46% 2,099 17.00% 0805.50.3000 Tihitian Limes, Persian Limes And Other Limes Of The Citrus Latifolia Variety, Fresh Or Dried $129,637,868 $147,105,375 -11.87% 18,433 3.25% 0805.50.4000 Limes (citrus Aurantifolia) Fresh Or Dried $13,398,349 $18,669,465 -28.23% 2,294 -15.41% 0805.90.0100 Citrus Fruits, Fresh Or Dried, Including Kumquats, Citrons, Bergamots And Others, Nesoi $1,774,504 $1,352,310 31.22% 75 22.95% www.zepol.com Page 4 2009 Trade Activity HTS ? 0805 Citrus Fruit, Fresh or Dried Export Product Categories HTS Code 2009 Valu cords e 2008 Value Change Record Res Change 0805.10.0020 Oranges, Temple, Fresh Or Dried $64,571,796 $57,493,895 12.31% 2,708 -16.80% 0805.10.0040 Oranges, Fresh Or Dried, Nesoi $347,427,706 $380,043,125 -8.58% 21,889 -5.46% 0805.20.0020 Tangerines, Fresh Or Dried $18,180,342 $19,330,275 -5.95% 1,202 -7.25% 0805.20.0040 Mandarins (including Satsumas), Clementines, Wilkings And Similar Citrus Hybrids, Fresh Or Dried, Nesoi $25,986,905 $28,592,398 -9.11% 1,466 8.75% 0805.40.0000 Grapefruit, Fresh Or Dried $185,669,810 $194,401,863 -4.49% 7,300 -5.82% 0805.50.2000 Lemons (citrus Limon, Citrus Limonum) Fresh Or Dried $112,963,483 $142,642,003 -20.81% 5,992 -7.59% 0805.50.5050 Limes (citrus Aurantifolia, Citrus Latifolia), Fresh Or Dried $12,127,690 $15,150,903 -19.95% 1,184 -7.36% 0805.90.0100 Citrus Fruits, Fresh Or Dried, Nesoi $5,208,789 $1,769,131 194.43% 225 58.45% www.zepol.com Page 5 Key Consignees for HTS ? 0805 Citrus Fruit, Fresh or Dried 2009 Con stimated Estimated Estimated signee Name E TEUs Metric Tons Shipments DNE World Fruit Sales 2,989 42,458 908 Fisher Capespan 909 19,661 458 LGS Specialty Sales 800 22,494 546 The Oppenheimer Group 762 9,001 280 Seald Sweet 672 13,847 362 AMC Direct 621 7,197 295 Loblaw Companies 482 5,597 101 Agri Mondo 418 5,750 220 Fresh Taste Produce 406 23,256 180 Tom Lange (Canada) 364 4,248 161 Bee Sweet Citrus 322 5,040 101 William H.
