Shipfix Case Study AIS Applied to Dry Cargo

Generate Powerful Trade Flow Insights in One Easy to Use Interface

Shipfix is revolutionizing the way the maritime industry analyzes dry market cargo

This groundbreaking data and community platform streamlines commercial and operational processes between stakeholders in the Dry Bulk and Break Bulk maritime markets. Shipfix works with global enterprises looking for greater operating efficiencies and market insights.


Maritime professionals receive thousands of unstructured emails each day from which market insights and conclusions are drawn.

Shipfix saw an opportunity to reduce risk, save time and decrease costs by utilizing machine learning to scan market insight emails. Shipfix extracts key data from emails allowing users to filter market insights based on preferences, including tonnage, open dates, open/load areas, cargo specification, and vessel types.

“Shipowners, ship operators, and charterers operate by combining three separate sources of information to develop their strategy and thousands of emails need to be sorted daily to find market insights. We realized there had to be a better way.”
