6.32.        Many users, in particular for the purposes of the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) purposes, would need information on the real value of international freight transport services contracts (i.e. with no adjustment for either the free on board (FOB)/FOB valuation of goods in BOP, or the FOB/cost, insurance, freight (CIF) valuation in merchandise trade statistics). These are, in fact, the data that are collected in transport surveys. Compilers are encouraged to use the raw data that may be collected from freight transportation companies or their agents to make publicly available supplementary estimates of the “real” trade in freight transport services taking place between residents and non-residents.[1]
