Navigate supply and demand dynamics in ocean markets with the Container Atlas dashboard, available only in SONAR.
SONAR Container Atlas offers multidimensional, high-frequency ocean market data collected at the point of booking that is unavailable anywhere else. Make more informed and profitable decisions when negotiating with ocean carriers using near real-time, granular carrier capacity and service metrics.
SONAR Container Atlas’s ocean container bookings data gives users a leading indicator of TEU volumes and rate pressure in container trade lanes. Rather than relying on customs data for lagging indicators of volume that sailed weeks ago, Container Atlas users see the volumes being booked with carriers before the vessel departs, at the point of origin. Faster data allows supply chain participants to understand capacity pressure on their lanes in real time and make timely adjustments, reducing cost and improving service.
Until now, shippers have been forced to manage their ocean freight networks retrospectively by benchmarking their carriers’ and 3PLs’ performance against lagging volume data from ports and container rate information from freight bill auditors. SONAR Container Atlas allows shippers to see into the future by capturing ocean container volume data when the shipments are booked, before they hit the water. High-frequency bookings data empowers shippers to make impactful, proactive decisions about their freight before it moves, identifying where capacity and rate pressures may be working in their favor.
In times of extreme unpredictability and uncertainty, SONAR Container Atlas gives supply chain participants the fastest and most comprehensive look at ocean markets available. Get multidimensional ocean market data to find the right partner and keep your freight moving smoothly. Find out where capacity is loosening first by watching all the twists and turns of the market using SONAR Container Atlas.
