Not only do we track global crude oil movements on a vessel-by-vessel basis, but also cargo-by-cargo, and even dock-by-dock.
Applying decades of experience and a wealth of proprietary data, ClipperMaritime delivers a level of research, analysis and solutions consulting unmatched in today’s maritime industry.
As soon as a tanker leaves the loading facility, it’s in our dataset. And as soon as it docks at a discharge facility, our system is updated.
Our projections use a Bayesian probability model with inputs that include prior voyages, fixture data, AIS-declared destinations, and the tanker’s rated dead-weight tonnage.
Unique Data CollectionWe track the tanker beyond the destination port all the way to the ultimate discharge facility. This means we can draw a picture of refinery operations that others cannot.
