Tankers International to add Baltic Exchange data to VLCC Fixture app

Tankers International, a shipping pool for VLCCs, has announced plans to partner with the Baltic Exchange to improve information and data sharing within its VLCC Fixture app.

Paid app subscribers will have access to Baltic Exchange benchmarks and forward curves in addition to the current data offering, which includes information on bunker prices, fixing rates, laycan, demurrage and commissions, as well as a breakdown of TCE calculations.

Subscribers can also access cargo forecasts and receive real time fixture notifications via WhatsApp, and will have an option to receive fixture data via an API feed to integrate directly into own systems.

“The dynamic nature of our market today means that shipowners, charterers and brokers all need quality data faster to support their decision making,” said Charlie Grey, Chief Executive Officer of Tankers International.

“Our partnership with the Baltic Exchange will enable even greater collaboration on real-time information that’s used by both our pool partners and our wider app subscriber base. Our subscribers extend to multiple stakeholders across the supply chain, from media to analysts and market investors.”

“We’re pleased to partner with such a renowned institution regarding trading data and look forward to providing even greater insight into our sector.”
