Trade flows

Empowering analysts with insights on flows of goods and people globally

Monitoring ports, airports, road traffic and strategic locations

According to the International Chamber of Shipping, the international shipping industry is responsible for the carriage of roughly 90% of world trade. Shipping is therefore a strong indicator for global trade, which in turn is representative of global economic activity.

Transportation of goods links global supply to demand. Effective monitoring of such activities is therefore of interest to many stakeholders. The assessment of air and road travel can provide insights on demand (such as energy products) and economic activity (in the context of Covid-19 pandemic recovery).

Geospatial intelligence offers unmatched opportunities to accurately model the fluxes of goods and people across the globe in close to real-time. Monitoring activities in hundreds of ports, airports, and strategic locations provides analysts and decision makers with an accurate, timely and holistic view of international flows.
