"At a time of great focus on the U.S. balance of trade, the lifting of the crude oil export ban and increased demand for ship-by-ship, grade-by-grade tracking, we are delighted to work with ICE to deliver this information," says Abudi Zein, Co-Founder and CEO of ClipperData. "This brings market transparency in the cargo space to a whole new level."
For the first time, oceangoing vessels are carrying almost 1 billion barrels of crude oil. Floating storage and "waiting cargoes" are also at historic highs creating unprecedented demand for cargo intelligence.

"We are pleased to work with ClipperData to provide our market participants timely information on cargo flows, grade-by-grade, dock-by-dock, in advance of this key oil market report each week."
