Make informed trading decisions with the most reliable, up-to-date biodiesel and renewable diesel import information available
Access key international shipment information for a more complete picture of biodiesel and renewable diesel flows worldwide
Using Genscape Vesseltracker AIS data and proprietary ship tracking, the Global Biodiesel Monitor provides stakeholders with access to key international shipment information to deliver a more complete picture of biodiesel and renewable diesel flows worldwide.
The first release of the product, the Global Biodiesel Imports Monitor, combines weekly updates with access to historical vessel movements into the U.S. Each report includes two sections: the Vessel Watch List for vessels in transit, and Shipment Confirmations for vessels that have arrived in the U.S.
Users get access to the results of Genscape's proprietary tracking technology, with which each port of interest is monitored with electronic boundaries in real-time to track ingress and egress of ships. Each entry in the Vessel Watch List includes vessel name, port information, departure date, estimated load upon departure, estimated arrival date, and expected destination. The Watch List is updated weekly as the ship progresses toward the U.S. It provides users a way to anticipate future deliveries into the U.S. biodiesel and renewable diesel supply chains.
Once a shipment arrives in the U.S., it is moved onto the Shipment Confirmation List. Each delivery is confirmed and compared to U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) data. Once EIA and public ITC data become available several weeks later, shipments are grouped by arrival month and compared to these sources, putting all the data in one place.
With this tool, users can quickly analyze real vessel movements on a granular level, providing them with a better, more complete, and more reliable understanding of the movement of biodiesel and renewable diesel from Argentina, Southeast Asia, Canada, and Germany to the U.S.
