“We have always found Genscape VesselTracker data to be of exceptional quality. In particular, the S-AIS data they are able to provide, through their exclusive partnership with exactEarth, is excellent compared to what we have received from other suppliers in the past. Furthermore, the fact that we are able to very easily integrate the whole data stream into our own systems and processes means that we see Genscape VesselTracker not only as a supplier, but as an important partner.”
