About Us

Tradeviews was founded in 2012 to solve the problem of incoherent cargo trade volume data in the maritime sector. The founder, Russell, was working as an analyst for a ship owner. He realised the time and skill to collect good trade data was an important task the industry had not yet addressed.

Russell learnt programming languages to bridge the gap between tech and shipping. He used the emerging technologies of cloud computing and artificial intelligence. Gradually, he's built up a team of specialist consultants to design, engineer and build a robust database of trade.

The company has an impressive customer list of leading shipping companies putting their trust in the quality data. Our database is ideal for banks, hedge funds, commodity traders, ship operators and brokers.The main uses are for operational decisions, building models, understanding the past and predicting the future.

Our offering has evolved using AI technologies for data processing. This has produced a magical combination of data science and industry experience to produce unrivaled trade information.
