What are the benefits of oil tanker tracking data?

For anyone working in the oil and gas markets, oil tanker tracking data gives you the cutting edge when it comes to identifying new opportunities.


Easily identify vessel origin, destination and cargo

The proprietary data supplied by Vortexa’s oil and gas intelligence lets you pinpoint every waterborne vessel. Vortexa’s oil and gas platform and data ensures you can easily identify: 

  • Flows – the real quantities of grades moved and moving between any two places
  • Origins – the exact terminal or STS from which each vessel loads 
  • Destination – the specific ports each vessel is heading towards
  • Cargo – the volume and products onboard the vessel (from Crude & Condensates to LPG, Naphtha, Gasoline, Jet Fuel, Biodiesel and more)
  • Route changes – when a cargo gets rerouted you’ll be the first to know 
  • Ship to ship cargo transfers – follow complex supply chains involving multiple vessels transferring cargoes around the world

Vortexa’s oil tanker tracking software makes it easy to identify any changes in vessel locations, cargo and directions by the minute. By requesting a demo today, see how you can be the first to respond to any market changes.
