Understand seasonality and market forces


We've developed a tool for analysing seasonality. By selecting cargo types and regions you can understand trades that follow clear seasonal patterns and those that follow economic trends. This can help you anticipate future commodity demand.

We've also developed tradeflow maps so you can understand intercontinental movement of goods by cargo type. These can be analysed by tonne mile so you can see shipping vessel trade growth versus cargo growth.

Intelligently presented tables

We use bottom up bi-lateral trade tables with a simple filter system. The tables are sorted by volume and can be exported to excel with one click. Estimate values are coloured green for identification.
