Features at a glance

Barge tracking

We aggregate voyages and calculate the overall volumes of refined products entering the Rhine each week. The metrics on each grade are determined statistically through a unique algorithm. We reference the available storage capacity at each terminal where barges loaded during the week, as well as the capacity at discharge terminals along the Rhine and its tributaries and connected canals, to get an accurate estimate.

Waterborne oil flow monitoring

By carefully tracking each vessel using our AIS technology, and referencing detailed intelligence on load and discharge terminals, we accurately estimate true volumes of refined product flows to their final destination.

Unique market insight

European gasoil and ULSD markets are particularly reactive to inland demand. Get weekly commentary on total refined product demand in the region.
