Keeping a watchful eye

Governmental institutions maritime intelligence 558x415jpg

The nature of global shipping trade and the complexity of the industry make transparent monitoring and effective policing highly difficult.

We provide the maritime news, insight, data and reports governments and public sector bodies use for border control, natural resource protection, combatting crime and keeping our seas safe.

  • Identify financial crime and smuggling – with our unique vessel tracking and vessel characteristic information.
  • Spot ship-to-ship transfers – identify when vessels move materials, for example drugs or other contraband, from ship to ship at sea.
  • Verify global trade data – you can rely on our unbiased, rigorously researched data.
  • Monitor the assets of individuals – link the person to the ship, to the location, to the trade. Our ownership team leaves no stone unturned when finding out the true owner of a vessel.
  • Stay up to date with the industry – use our news and insight to connect events and help you best plan your next moves.
  • Keep abreast of legal developments – we provide authoritative and up-to-date commentary on the latest financial crime law from leading industry experts
