New Developments:

Over the last five months Datamar has been talking to clients and developing a new tool that will take DataLiner to the next level. The main developments include:

- Shorter time lag

- Greater breadth of data – Big Data

- Better technology – ready made reports

- Available on the browser

- Works on all devices – responsive

Soon we will be releasing a BETA version of DataLiner. A big thank you to our clients for your usual cooperation and support!

What is it

DataLiner is a maritime trade data product that enables you to analyze the market and take decisions on three different levels:

  • Strategic – overall view of the maritime and logistics market
  • Commercial – detailed information on companies and commodities
  • Operational – maritime logistics detailing vessels, ports and terminals

Countries covered

DataLiner applies the same methodology to process data across four different countries, meaning you can be sure you are comparing apples with apples – something not so easily achieved with trade data systems that cover multiple countries.

  • Brazil
  • Argentina
  • Uruguay
  • Paraguay

Brazil data includes both container and non-container information. Other countries only cover container trade.


What are the Sources

Datamar holds a partnership with shipping lines and agents to collect ship manifests in the countries covered. Datamar analyses this information and edits it to ensure consistency and standardization. Datamar also adds this information to its other databases on vessel calls, services, terminals, commodities, companies and others to provide DataLiner.
