Per-Shipment Costs and the Lumpiness of International Trade

The Review of Economics and Statistics, 97(2): 525-530

Using detailed U.S. and Spanish export data, we document that trade costs of a per-shipment nature are associated with less frequent and larger shipments (i.e., more lumpiness) in international trade. This finding is pervasive across broad product categories, but most apparent for industrial supplies, parts and accessories, and food products.
