A clearer picture


The seaborne oil trade is often opaque. Our current, future and historical information lifts the veil on this sector.

You’ll be able to understand what’s happened in the past, monitor what’s happening now and predict future shifts in supply and demand – so you can make better oil fleet management and trading decisions with confidence.

How it works

We offer:

  • Ultra-reliable seaborne oil trade analysis – broken down by import and export voyages and port-specific accounts of tanker movements
  • Detailed loading and discharge updates – understand vessel utilisation levels and feed your organisation’s knowledge of individual refineries
  • The gold standard in vessel movement data – you’ll get a precise view of oil flows thanks to our combination of AIS vessel tracking and human intelligence
  • *NEW* You can now subscribe to just the weekly APEX Storage Report and/or the weekly Top 30 Countries Report


How it helps

Knowing whether a region is over or under-supplied will give a crucial competitive advantage, whether you’re looking to generate revenue, charter vessels or optimise your operations.
