It’s that time again! Another round of PIERS trade data is available on even more company and product profiles in NextGen. As of today, hundreds of thousands more trade records are available to view (and download!) that include company and product specific details on import and export shipments, including weight and estimated value, equipping you with the information needed to make informed sourcing decisions. The history of import/export records in NextGen now expands the entire year of 2014, and we aren’t stopping any time soon.

About ChemicalInfo Chemical Information Services was established in 1972 and began as a publisher of chemical supplier data that was sold on an as-needed basis. This quickly morphed into a high demand for something formal to be compiled and distributed to chemical and pharmaceutical companies across the globe, making ChemicalInfo a one-stop shop for chemical sourcing needs. ChemicalInfo has partnered with an outstanding systems integration and UI firm to work on the redesign and consolidation of its databases. This seven month project kicked off on January 15th, 2014, and enhancement expectations include an entirely new user interface, more robust chemical and producer information, and a more efficient internal system for making updates to the database so that the ChemicalInfo team can properly utilize its resources.
