MariTrace makes data available via Bloomberg Enterprise Access Point

Bloomberg Data License clients can now access data that provides fuller picture of worldwide movements of 50,000 commercial ships between 7,500 ports

MariTrace, which provides data on the worldwide movements of over 50,000 commercial ships between 7,500 ports, provides industry and commodity intelligence. Receiving around 1.6 million messages per hour from vessels all over the world via satellite and terrestrial receivers, MartiTrace analyses this vast stream of data and delivers bespoke datasets to clients globally. Bloomberg Data License clients can now easily discover, access and integrate MariTrace data into their workflows, streamlining the process and reducing barriers to end users.

MariTrace Managing Director, Thomas Owen, comments: ‘We’ve spent years refining the work we do  at MariTrace. Analysing such enormous data streams and creating a repository of information from our bespoke datasets requires a very specific skill set that we’ve worked hard to achieve. Bloomberg Enterprise Access Point allows us to make the data directly available to clients seamlessly and effectively.’

Launched in September 2018, Bloomberg Enterprise Access Point is the company’s web-based data marketplace that allows Data License clients to easily discover, access and immediately use high quality, market leading content from both Bloomberg and third party providers.

In September 2020, Bloomberg announced  the expansion of its alternative data offering through Bloomberg Enterprise Access Point. The expansion represents a three-fold increase in the number of third-party alternative data vendors available through Enterprise Access Point since the product’s introduction in February 2019.

The move allows Bloomberg clients to access a much-expanded catalogue of curated alternative data, uniquely positioned to provide insights in today’s market environment.
