On the heels of agricultural goods flow: The FleetMon Agricultural Commodities Trading Database

in Updates, Site Updates by

Croatian bulk carrier SPLIT arrived in the Belgian port of Ghent a few days ago. What is its cargo, where did it come from?

FleetMon knows: It carried agricultural commodities. Our new Agricultural Commodities Trading Database holds records on bulk shipments of over 90 different commodities between over 100 countries. Both past and current shipments are listed, and it is easy as usual on FleetMon.com to drill down the results and look for a specific ship, a certain commodity group, or shipments to a certain port or market.

So, what do we know about SPLIT’s cargo? Pull up the database, and here we are: It carried 27’500 tons of rapeseed from the Ukrainian port of Odessa to the Western European market. Awaited on 2012-10-25, it arrived well on time.

Did SPLIT engage in other transports of agricultural commodities over the last months? Which ports does it call to regularly? And what other goods are going to be shipped from Odessa to Belgium? What quantities of sunflower seeds are currently under way? All these question can be readily answered with the database.

The close integration with the FleetMon Vessel Database and AIS tracking opens undreamt-of possibilities in the analysis of commodity trades. Up-to-date position information allows to make informed decisions and react early on delays, ETA changes and incidents.

We are proud to offer our users this fantastic new perspective on the world’s commodity flows today. To access the database, just subscribe to our Agricultural Commodities service via the order page (not included in FleetMon.com Pro or Unlimited plans) or request a free trial.
