The issue

Over the past few years Lloyd’s List Intelligence has become increasingly aware of competitor services reporting vessel movements that do not give users the full picture. We are regularly contacted by customers reporting that vessel movement information varies widely amongst maritime data providers.


The approach

 Take this common example:

 Sanctions case study example 1

The containership Admiral Globe’s AIS transmitter stopped transmitting when sailing close to Iranian waters in the Middle East Gulf.


As other vessel tracking providers rely on AIS terrestrial and satellite data alone, no port calls were registered by other maritime providers. AIS data shows the vessel’s journey, but only reveals a gap in time.


With other maritime data providers you only see the AIS messages as below.

Lloyd’s List Intelligence was able to verify, through its exclusive global agent network on the ground at hundreds of locations, that the vessel called at the sanctioned Iranian Port Bandar Abbas.

The Outcome

Our customers tell us time and time again that this level of detail on vessel movements and sanctioned port callings is available only through Lloyd’s List Intelligence data and cannot be found elsewhere on the market. As sanctions breaches continue to be an issue for industries wishing to manage and reduce risk, we are uniquely placed to access a level of human intelligence unavailable to other providers.


In the last 12 months, Lloyd’s List intelligence has recorded 8.3m port callings and passing. Of these 8.3m, 31% (2.4m) have been confirmed by human intelligence. Over 400 ports on Lloyd’s List Intelligence are covered solely by our agent network, with no AIS coverage. This network of global agents is exclusive to Lloyd’s List Intelligence, meaning other competitors are unable to offer the same high level of risk mitigation capability.
