Macro level view of the routes the BP Shipping fleet has been taking for the last year... January 2014

Using cFlow, you can quickly report on flows of gas or oil tankers, or analyse history of ports, or look at the movement of competitor fleets.

This diagram shows you the macro level footprint of the BP fleet in 2013.  You could do the same for any of your competitors.  Or you could just look at trading patterns for a given commodity.

Micro level view of BP Shipping in Rotterdam.

Just as easily as looking at the macro level for a competitor fleet, you could look at the micro level as well.  Here we see the terminals and berths used by the BP Shipping fleet for Rotterdam.  By understanding who uses which jetties, you can begin to build a picture of who your competitors are selling to within each port and region.

cFlow can give you specific ship information, or macro economic analysis.  Some of the very largest banks and commodities companies in the world use cFlow.  To find out more, contact us at customerservices@commodityflow.com.
