The file is the master foreign trade file used as input to the forecast model. Data content includes commodity flow data by port in tons and dollars. The master file incorporates programming by which the data from census bureau tapes sa 705 and sa 305 (waterborne foreign trade) is sorted to net U.S. aid shipments and p1480 shipments from the U.S. transoceanic foreign trade and to add our shipments not available on mag. Tapes; while the waterborne data yields port to port commodity flow data. The program output aggregates data to the country level to give forcast of the transportation demand derived from U.S. transoceanic commerce 1970, 1975, and 1980. Also a three volume report is available summarizing the study of transoceanic cargo movements by air, water, and combination mides for the period 1970 to 1980. Volume II presents the results of the study. Included are projections for the costs and productivities of the transoceanic transport technologies for the years 1970-1980. Jumbo-type aircraft, bulkers, tankers, container ships, breakbulk ships, and barge carriers are covered. There is also some information on domestic and foreign inland modes and on peripheral costs such as documentation, inventory, pickup and delivery, and insurance. Vol. I contains a presentation of study methodologies. Vol. III documents the computer programs of the demand forecasting models and cost model used in the study.
