Panjiva, an online search engine with detailed information on global suppliers and manufacturers, recently announced that through a partnership with Export to China (ETCN) it is the first company to make Chinese trade data accessible in searchable company profiles.
ETCN is a Chinese information, consulting, and commercial platform helping international enterprises with China import-export trade.
Panjiva said it now holds rights to publish ETCN data in this searchable format, in turn providing its customers with insight into Chinese-based suppliers and customers. And it explained that this agreement provides its customers with various facets of Chinese trade data with information on active companies and potential trade partners in 17 industries, including textiles and apparel, furniture, auto and auto parts, and pharmaceuticals. Panjiva can also now provide customers with information and data on:
- Shipments to and from not only the U.S., but also every country around the world
- Breakdown of the dollar value of goods shipped to each country;
- Mode of transport, such as vessel or air;
- Enterprise nature, including state-owned, private and foreign-invested
Data provided by ETCN for Panjiva is based on Chinese government data that is made available to ETCN.
“What we have now is trade data describing import and export activities for about 200,000 companies in China,” said Panjiva CEO Josh Green in an interview. “It cuts across a wide variety of product categories from apparel to hardware to furniture, toys, and auto parts and others. It is part of a broad spectrum.”
What makes this partnership particularly interesting, Green said, is that for the first time it is going to put a set of companies on to the radar of global trade professionals and describe these companies based on their export activity out of China regardless of where their goods are bound for.
