We provide chemical shipping market intelligence, research, digitalisation solutions, strategic consultancy, and port-services aggregation so our customers save cost and improve margin.

DIGITAL SHIPPING

Maritime shipping is in a flux. Technological changes are putting pressure on businesses and people to adapt. While helping companies ride the digitalisation wave, we take lead in creating otherwise unavailable value-add product offerings by leveraging on technological breakthroughs:

OUR INDICES

Our time-series (since 2003) freight data and quantitatively developed chemical freight indices continue to improve as we access ever wider network of data, sources, ever-enhancing data processing and modeling. Our next goal is to develop these indices based on a hedonic model.

OUR DATA

Our comprehensive data include time-series freight rates, ship, cargo and trade volumes in chemicals, lubes, vegoils, indicators in freight, T/C rates and S&P prices and forecasts. These are designed and supported by a data management framework including a robust IT infrastructure.

OUR TECH APPLICATIONS

Our tech applications include: Chartering & ops systems; ship tracking; voyage & DA management system; document automation & management; BI & dashboards; and continually developing products like PortView; Cargo+; Position+; Book-a-Launch; AGENSEE, etc.

OUR SERVICES

Our services are organised based on the 3 core pillars of technology, intelligence and service. We leverage on the advent of advanced technologies, our domain expertise and intelligence in chemical shipping markets, with a customer-centric service attitude to deliver real values simply. 

MEDIA & RESOURCES

We want to share our knowledge about chemical shipping and the challenges and opportunities it faces. In this process, our current and future collaborators can know more about us and the business we are doing, and create more values together.

GRAPH
OF THE WEEK

Intra-NEA chemical trade grows a further 7% in 2017 to 27 MMT. Paraxylene remains the key growth drivers as intra-regional volume grew further by another 1.2 MMT (12% YoY) to aggregate 12MMT.

ON CHEMICAL
SHIPPING

The global seaborne liquid chemical trade is expected to grow to 183 million metric tonnes (MMT) in 2017. This market is forecast to grow to 202 MMT by 2022. Such growth has kept chemical shipping and tank storage business growing in tandem. While the chemical industry has grown substantially, real GDP growth to world export growth multiplier indicates a ‘normalisation’ trend.
