Vortexa is delighted to announce a data partnership with The Baltic Exchange, which makes its freight pricing benchmarks available alongside Vortexa analytics.

Vortexa’s forward view of tonnage supply up to 35 days ahead along with real-time tonne-mile demand data at the highest frequency and granularity available in the freight markets are rapidly transforming chartering and positioning decisions among Vortexa's existing clients including trading houses, shipowners and oil majors.

 

The integration of The Baltic Exchange freight prices with Vortexa's real-time supply and demand freight analytics will empower users to identify, optimise and time opportunities in the freight markets at much greater speed and accuracy.

 

Fabio Kuhn, Vortexa’s CEO said: "It's the first time that predictive and real-time freight analytics and pricing are brought this close. This unparalleled view will unlock an immense competitive edge to market participants in a fast-evolving playing field". 

 

Mark Jackson, Baltic Exchange’s CEO said: ‘’Vortexa analytics are hugely respected and we’re delighted to collaborate. This partnership adds value to Vortexa users and increases the footprint of The Baltic Exchange as the world’s leading source of independent maritime market data.”

 

Vortexa's Freight Analytics provides charterers and shipowners insights into supply and demand market dynamics that enhance profitability and minimise risk, allowing them to evaluate competitors, gain the upper hand in negotiations and remain agile in the market.
