Dahua US Imports - Here Is Their #1 Customer By Far

By: John Honovich, Published on Mar 17, 2017

We have been reviewing shipping records of both Dahua and Hikvision products coming in to the US. This is to help prepare the Dahua OEM and Hikvision OEM lists.

One fascinating metric is that there is a single customer who accounts for more than half of Dahua's shipments recorded to the US.

Very interesting article!

Yeah. It's interesting. But somehow. This data are important for them which I think they do not wanna disclose. 

Found an import / exporter that handles a modest amount of volume for Dahua. The list below includes a shipment to IndigoVision:

Wow!  Thanks for the article... very interesting indeed.

Btw, here is Dahua shipments to Tyco, dba Sensormatic. 23k kg which is overall fairly small, a fraction of, e.g., what IC Realtime receives:

Also, for those wanting a free version, try USA Import Data. For example, searching for Dahua there has fairly good results though without the summarization stats and maybe a few other things.

It doesn't allow me to search addresses (especially with just their zip code and street address), which has allowed me to expose companies that only DBA as their public name.

Edit: Also not finding a number of the shipping containers that were sent to Houston that I remembered the company unloading.

Unfortunately, I can't use our address on Panjiva to see if we had a different cosignee or importing name for those containers.

Great work!!!  Look if they are going to prohibit products for cyber, they have to address OEM’s selling them.  While this reality has me at a great crossroads no doubt, it’s time to fix this.
