Powerful Tool for Researching Cross-Border Trade Data

The Observatory of Economic Complexity (OEC), created by MIT graduate Alexander Simoes, helps display and organize import and export data in a visual narrative so that users can quickly pick up on insights and retrieve key facts.

If you want reassurance about the best international market in which to launch your product, to assess the capabilities of your ocean cargo carrier, or just want to be mesmerized by the data visualizations that draw themselves in front of your eyes, you should check out this tool.

Optimize Pallet Loading With This Online Tool

We recently discovered OnPallet.com, an easy and free web tool for planning how your product will fit on a pallet for shipping.

Enter the standard dimensions and weight of the pieces you need to ship (this tool assumes each piece is the same), the max height at which you want to stack the pieces (this will be the total height of your pallet) and then just select the size of your pallet. Now hit submit and OnPallet.com will show you how many pieces can be packaged onto that skid, total weight, and the best way to arrange them. Very slick!
