Global Trade Atlas: International Import and Export Commodity Trade Data

Find timely and accurate international trade statistics for 98% of the world's import and export merchandise trade

Global Trade Atlas (GTA) is the market-leading solution for access to a comprehensive view of global trade data in every commodity at the most detailed level of harmonized system code (HS code). GTA encompasses dependable bilateral trade data for 101 countries and annual data for close to 200 countries, based on official imports and exports statistics.

Since each country uses different reporting methodologies and currencies for merchandize trade, collecting and collating a world trade database through other means would be extremely time-consuming, difficult and prone to the risk of errors.
