This upgrade offers an advanced search feature, expanded company contact information, additional download formats, and other enhancements. PIERS Prospects is widely used by trade related organizations such as logistics companies, banks, insurance providers, or any organization providing services to importers and exporters.
Prospects 2.0 enables users to rapidly identify and contact new potential customers. Users may search for importers and exporters by company name, commodity, Standard Industry Code (SIC), Harmonized Commodity code (HS Code), volume traded, country, or within a specific U.S. state, county, zip code, or congressional district. Market leaders or competitors can be identified, ranked, and sorted. Users can easily see who trading partners are buying from, or selling to. More than just providing U.S. centric data, overseas trading partners can be identified as well.
The detailed import and export data that drives the Prospects 2.0 database is gleaned from actual trade transaction documents sourced from U.S. Customs, PIERS staff employees located at all major U.S. ports, and additional resources which contribute to PIERS uniquely comprehensive data set. Trade transaction data is collected from every manifest and bill of lading and is routinely, analyzed, verified, and updated via a sophisticated proprietary data processing system which has been built over 35 years to collect and standardize over 1.5 billion records a year.
