Panama has retained its position as the world’s leading flag state in terms of gross tonnage for 2022 but is facing strong competition from Liberia, which is rapidly closing the gap to its rival, while China also recorded exceptional growth in the past 12 months.
In our quest to make everyday life easier, neater and nicer, we surround ourselves with stuff that, in certain circumstances, can be harmful: kitchen and bathroom cleaning products, paint, and air fresheners, for example. Millions of these products are sold every day and they are taken to market by ships.
Seaborne trade between Iran and Russia via the Caspian Sea, a suspected route for weapons shipments, is increasing and ships plying the trade are routinely doing so with Automatic Identification System (AIS) signals turned off.
Gain insight into future vessel activity with Predictive Fleet Analytics for supply chain efficiency and to pinpoint sales potential.
Russia’s supply chains have shown resilience since the invasion of Ukraine, with cargo flows being redirected to ‘friendly’ countries using transport corridors touted by President Vladimir Putin as long-term priority trade routes.
Port congestion and increased berthing times - the new normal under China’s strict Covid policy
Making sense of a spider web of digital information, false leads and anecdotes involves persistence, intuition and the ability to dive deep into the world’s preeminent store of marine data.
A new offshore logistics network is evolving to transport Russian oil and circumvent the restrictions of sanctions and expensive insurance.
The unique structure of the maritime industry means that establishing who controls – or owns - what in the world of shipping can be extremely challenging. Because of the war in Ukraine, and Western efforts to lock out Russian energy exports, the issue is now under the spotlight as never before.
Marine businesses are often forced to deal with vessel ETA inaccuracies. What are the knock-on effects and how can organisations secure better ETA data?
As the supply chain crisis evolves and new areas of risk emerge, another trend has become apparent: a growing global fleet of moribund vessels, saved from the scrapyard by persistently high freight rates and the illicit oil trade.
Increasingly complex sanctions compliance standards leave operators more exposed to penalties - unless they have an advanced risk and compliance solution.
For the people involved in keeping our oceans safe, marine casualty data is critical, but it’s also increasingly vital to keep the world’s supply chains moving. The constantly moving and changing maritime industry needs data and insight that evolves.
As ports and global shipping become ever more complicated, accurate geospatial ports data can be the key to efficiency and costs savings.
International shipping is under more scrutiny than ever. Here's how advanced maritime data can help ensure regulatory compliance.
Learn how our COACT framework delivers accurate and reliable maritime data to enable intelligent compliance risk management, monitoring of maritime trade and smarter commercial strategy.
Operations at ports are increasingly busy and complicated. Cut through the complexity with reliable and advanced maritime data.
Official sanctions lists such as OFAC establish a firm red line against the highest risk vessels, flag states, owners, and operators. Any legitimate organisation that does business with these blacklisted vessels or entities – knowingly or unknowingly – could suffer financially or reputationally.
The movement of illicit cargo across water is increasingly difficult to pinpoint. Tactics used by owners and operators to conceal the transport and exchange of materials that are sanctioned are evolving and becoming increasingly sophisticated.
The key to success in identifying maritime compliance risk is being able to understand and rate patterns of high-risk behaviour and activity as quickly as possible. Ideally, to do so as soon as the activity emerges and before it reaches alarming levels.
The constantly moving and changing maritime industry needs data and insight that evolves. Since we’ve integrated machine learning into our powerful historical and real-time database, new and more advanced insight about vessel and fleet behaviour has emerged.
