“From one search on Zepol's trade intelligence website, we were able to recover our annual subscription costs just by finding the name of a new supplier. Moving forward, we will be able to save thousands a year just from this one query that took no more than 5 minutes.”

“Zepol's trade intelligence tools have allowed me to monitor the flow of off-shore competitive products into the US. This monthly review allows me to identify customers that are trying off-shore products and gives me an opportunity to try to win the business back before they develop an established relationship with the foreign company.

“Our company has used Zepol for nearly 5 years. Their search functions allow us to save time in the process of gathering competitive import data. In addition, the data is formatted for easy downloads and customer service is commendable.”

Our European companies are ecstatic about the intelligence it provides them as well. Zepol constantly evolves the tool to support customer needs. This tool has paid for itself 10 times over for our company. It has become a very integral part of our business planning process. I would recommend Zepol as a business intelligence tool for any company.”

“Zepol’s TradeView is an outstanding addition to my classes. Many of my students are actively involved in trade, and this resource helps them to quickly and effectively identify trends regarding source countries, best markets, trade flow transitions, and volume. In a world of keen competition, Zepol’s TradeIQ provides my students with detailed bill of lading and transaction data. This allows them to see who is shipping what to whom, and in what volume and frequency. I applaud Zepol’s efforts in continually enhancing the web interface, making the data not only professional and practical, but transforming it into an intuitive research tool that can be vital to success. Thank you, Zepol, for working with educators and providing us with access to the tools that our students need to effectively compete in a constantly evolving global trade environment.”

“Zepol has been a valuable source for accurate and worthy data for international sales opportunities for our company. TradeIQ is a very cost effective operation resource tool that gives us maximum return on investment. Zepol's system updates over the past few years has allowed easy use and searching options.”

“The Zepol trade data bases have provided our Corporation with critical Global Intelligence on key raw materials and products that our vendors, customers, and competitors are importing and exporting. This has led to new sourcing options, understanding of new market segments to target for growth, and reveals critical strategies by our competition. I have personally used many of the trade data bases that are available in the market today, but Zepol is my cornerstone when it comes to U.S. trade. I have verified import/export data from other countries to the U.S. using other data bases and can confirm that the Zepol trade data is very accurate and more complete than some other trade data bases that have been in play in this business for a long time. Quite honestly, the only regret I have is that we would have had this trade tool earlier. I hope my competition doesn’t find out about it.”

      Top Printing Company

“We like TradeIQ for many reasons. The first is that it is the easiest to use system and contains more port trade data than any other tool we have ever used. In addition, it helps us identify the complete scope of a customer's business—including all lanes and volumes—to help us better meet their needs. Having this information allows us to compete more effectively in the international trade arena.”

“Zepol was instrumental in providing us the information we needed to locate suppliers and reduce our time to market from 6 months to 6 weeks, which resulted in our company being awarded a multi-million dollar deal with Wal Mart. The small window of opportunity was seized by us thanks to Zepol.”

“Zepol's TradeIQ has become an invaluable tool for our business.

“Zepol has been a significant asset in detecting diversion of our products from foreign countries back into the United States. In several cases, the Zepol data supported information received from anonymous tips or confirmed suspicions regarding diversion by foreign entities. In one specific case, orders valued at $17 million were canceled before they were received by the foreign entity and diverted back into the United States. In other cases, pallet quantities and shipment weights provided in the Zepol data have been used to match to foreign shipments thereby, confirming the foreign entity has diverted product back into the US.”

“Zepol has helped our business gain a competitive edge and allowed us to continue to grow despite tough times. Obviously the most important requirement is the accuracy and quality of the data, and Zepol's service continues to deliver on both. The business comes to me with a import related request and I'm able to login and present clear, critical data within minutes...I look like a hero and the company benefits without delay. Another requirement for me is Customer Service and Continuous Improvement, and Zepol continues to surpass my expectations. I frequently receive emails that alert me to enhancements to the service and I even received a personal phone call from a Zepol rep a few minutes after I made a mistake in one of my searches (I was impressed!). I would highly recommend the service and the high return on investment.”

“We have invested in the TradeIQ tool each of the last two years, and it has proved invaluable in supporting our ability to track competitive imports. As the global economy indeed becomes more global, I don't know that it's more evident in any other market than chemicals. With continued pressures from new and alternative sources from both Asia and South America, tracking specialty chemical imports has allowed us to preempt moves from our competition, both in the manufacturing and the distribution components of the supply chain.”
