Dear Subscribers!

It’s a pleasure for us to inform you that freight statistics since 2007 is now available in our Statservice area.

Some remarks:

The access to the Statservice will be available to our subscribers only.

Using the above service, you can see the freight data, i.e. the freight rates dynamics. All the information is to be updated no less than once in a month. Please note that the system itself analyzes the data availability and allows only the inquiries, that will NOT result in an empty chart. You can make a few requests at the same time, each of them will be opened as a new tab.

You can export the obtained data into MS Excel file and save it on your computer.

Ready-built request could also be saved. The next time you log in, you will find the above-mentioned request in the “Saved searches” part and then use it to get the updates.
