Functionality & Metrics
Our Trade Lane Analysis module provides detailed operational data and turnaround analysis. You can drill all the way down to the berth pair and get a complete trading history of that trade lane. You’ll need to select a pair of berths, terminals, or ports to have data displayed.
Metrics you can track with the Trade Lane Analysis dashboard include:
Turnaround analysis with the distribution of voyage time and summary stats
Interactive map of visualized voyages
Distribution of commodities and vessel segments
Timeseries of exports/imports either as annual, quarterly, monthly, weekly, or daily aggregates
Timeseries of voyage count
Timeseries of voyage duration (total days)
Timeseries of voyage duration (days at sea)
Timeseries of waiting time at anchor (both at load and discharge port)
Timeseries of average time in berth (load and discharge)
Timeseries of port call duration (load and discharge)
Voyage table with complete trading history by vessel (CSV download available)
See the following video that demonstrates how to track voyages from Port Kamsar to Yantai using the Trade Lane Analysis module.
