The most concise summary of big data advantages of Elane is the authenticity and real time. All of our data come from real shipping and logistics activities. As a fully independent third party, Elane just uses our system to record the logistics activities occurred in each voyage. We are concerned about the real-time circulating situation of every port, every ship, every shipment of the crude oil, ore, coal and grain container around the world, and the mining of the data will provide reliable basis for the customers’ investment and business decisions.

Ship refueling activity forecast: Elane grasps the operating activities of all ships, including oil tankers, bunkering tankers, fuel oil trading and transportation vessels. We can accurately forecast the ship refueling locations and cooperation businesses through the ship’s historical refueling situation, shipping oil consumption and ship speed analysis. Combined with the international oil price and fuel central purchasing business, Elane can always provide accurate refueling business on the precise time point.
Shipping capacity distribution and forecast: Traditional charter brokers receive thousands of emails about ship offer and cargo offer every day from all over the world, and use the artificial means to match the ship and cargo offer, resulting in intensive workloads and high error rates. Elane helps the ship brokers, charterers, traders all over the world to quickly find the right ships through the monitoring of all ships’ business activities and coordinating the screening of ships’ file information.

However, because of various situations during the process of coontainerized shipment such as weather, lines, carriers’ transshipment and port jam, degree on time of ship-owning companies and lines are greatly different. Yihailan publishes the situation of lines, ports and ship-owning companies seperately by researching the arrival records of ships in various lines of ship-owning companies, course schedule and information of ETA in AIS.
Effectiveness research in port operation: global economy steps into a recession period in 2015 with a gradually glide in volume of freight traffic. How to improve level of competitiveness of ports is an important index of stablizing economic development in various countries and governments. Yihailan could publish the real data in real time by ship berthing and goods handling thousands of times and making research of analyzing efficiency of cargo handling of various ship types and goods in port and port handling capacity.
