Port profiles and indexes

Drawing together published information and our own port analysis and statistics we produce: port profiles, rankings and comparisons, and port and terminal traffic profiles.

We can develop port, vessel and voyage forecasts to help you understand demand for cargo handling and vessel capacity.

Our voyage analysis can be specific to ports, routes and vessels allowing you to understand the interdependence with other ports and to predict future voyage routes by vessel type and by ports visited.

Fleet, voyage and AIS data

We provide data and information on:

  • Fleets, fleet operators and vessel performance statistics
  • Voyage patterns of fleets and individual vessels
  • Voyage forecasts based on market demand

Using both satellite and terrestrial sources we can offer historical and near-time cleansed and processed AIS data tailored to vessel types, geographic areas, trade and more.
