IHS Maritime & Trade – Increasing regulation of the energy and maritime industries is making it harder to structure strategic business decisions. Ship owners and investors have to become much better at understanding net asset values and the strengths and weaknesses of balance sheets, while commercial chartering departments need to master the art of risk management. The key to generating higher revenue and controlling costs is to know where the business is in the market cycle. IHS believes competitive advantage in an uncertain world is a function of data + analysis + insight; a formula that has already been a game-changer for many industries.
IHS offers insight on freight rates in the short- and medium-term, enabling users to strengthen the balance sheet, gain tighter control of the business, and secure a stable platform in a volatile shipping market. Moreover, improved forecasting will gain the confidence of bankers and other investors, who provide the liquidity the industry depends upon.
