Windward to offer open access to shipping insights to help fight coronavirus

Posted on: 24 March 2020

Joining the global fight against COVID-19, Windward, a leading maritime analytics company, will provide open access to its data and insights, offering a greater understanding of global trade flows – helping to strike a balance between protecting public health and maintaining global economic stability.

The new, interactive COVID-19 Shipping Map, is a publicly-accessible tool that gives users aggregated information on global maritime journeys, including types of ships, their origins and – critical in terms of the virus incubation period – time spent at sea.

Ami Daniel, Windward CEO, said: “Watching this global pandemic unfold, I knew we had to do whatever we could to help. We want this tool to enable everyone – including researchers, ports, governments, health officials, and the general public – to see that even in the face of COVID-19, the global shipping industry plays a critical role in ensuring supplies can continue to come in. The maritime ecosystem is strong, and together, we’re stronger.”
