Screen a vessel, its associated ownership, and management against sanctions, proprietary, enforcement action, and other official lists using best-in-class data from our alliance partners, Dow Jones Risk and Compliance.
Continuously monitor vessel activity:
Detection & Alerts: Notifications for high risk activity, e.g. entry to blacklisted port.
Hybrid Track Technology: A single trail combining AIS and Inmarsat position data.
Customisable features: Bespoke screening parameters, e.g. country/port blacklists.
Conduct detailed investigations:
Bill of Lading Verification: By simply entering the bill of lading number of a container shipment, confirm whether it is a recognised, legitimate asset within the database of container lines currently supported, and receive a list of all vessels, ports, and container lines involved in the BL delivery.
Dark Activity/Ship-to-ship transfer risk: Investigate periods of AIS non-reporting to locate a vessel in relation to high-risk transshipment areas and regulatory zones.
Enhanced vessel intelligence: Monitor vessels suspected of illicit activity, by performing further analysis on non-reporting gaps for full visibility of your marine assets and logistics using our Maritime Domain Awareness linkout.
With 90% of world trade travelling by sea, shipping is the backbone of our fossil-fuelled global trade mechanism.
Carbon scoring: Screen a vessel against environmental regulations using CarbonChain’s emissions calculations and greenhouse gas emissions data to receive a vessel’ environmental impact rating in comparison to its competitors in a downloadable report.
