December 1, 2016, Louisville, KY - Genscape, a leading global provider of real-time data and intelligence for the global commodity and energy markets, today announced the complete integration of more than 400 terrestrial AIS antennas in North America, providing an unprecedented level of data accuracy and visibility into ship movements in the U.S.
Genscape’s private monitoring network covers every commercial port in the U.S., and over 90 percent of U.S. inland waterways, including extensive coverage of key regions such as the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers, and the Gulf Coast. With this enhanced coverage only available to Genscape customers, commodity traders, ship owners and operators, and port service providers gain unique, real-time insight of vessel movements in North America, and an understanding of their associated commodity flows and trade patterns.
“Genscape is thrilled to offer our clients this unique opportunity to track both individual vessel movements and overall commodity flows with market-leading detail, timeliness, and accuracy,” explained Anton Bakharevski, Managing Director of Genscape Maritime. “This expansion demonstrates our commitment to developing Genscape’s terrestrial AIS antenna network, which enables us to provide customers with market-leading maritime intelligence.”
