Dear Sir/Madame,

My name is Joseph Issa. I am an Associate Director in Global Trade Compliance at MSD. I would like to request detailed Import Entry Data for MSD and its subsidiaries  as shown below (Entity Name & Importer ID)

Merck Sharp & Dohme IA LLC  (004-474-947-000)
Essex Pharmaceuticals, Inc.  (005-376-872-000)
Organon Philippines, Inc.  (001-504-548-000)
Schering-Plough Animal Health Inc.  (000-418-848-000)

I found Import Entry Data on  http://customs.gov.ph/import-reports/ 
but the reports don't have a data field (like Importer Name) that would help identify the importer.
