Market Intelligence

The eeSea Market Intel files

At eeSea we believe that all the information we stuff into our database is only at its best use when it’s available to you, on your terms.

The web app, which you are now logged in to, is where you can quickly find information on liner services, ports, terminals, transit times - or read the news. But the information becomes truly valuable when you aggregate it and use it for strategic and tactical purposes. When you dig deep, spot the big patterns, derive value-adding information to guide your business decisions.

The files are organized around our two primary universes; Liner Services and Port & Terminals. From the Liner Services universe, we further derive the Transit Time (port pairs) information.


  • The full data set on services and bottlenecks
  • Port rotations, vessel capacities, VSA operators & charterers
  • Total and primary capacity deployed in the various trade lanes
  • The detailed files offers you visibility on each leg in the service rotation, but only one month of data
  • The high-level files show you only the bottleneck legs (trade lane level), but for the full year
  • Transit time and direct port pair product comparisons are derived from the ETA/ETD mapped for each liner service
  • Sortable, pivotable, filterable. Fully flexible

Ports & Terminals

  • Global port throughput, current and historic
  • Capacity and volumes per terminal, where available
  • Terminal ownership data – current and historic records
  • Total and equity throughput and capacity, per operator
  • Sortable, pivotable, filterable. Fully flexible.

All the fields included in these files can be traced to information visible in the web app - such as carriers, service names, port codes/names etc. The typical data fields are the TEU fields - and the structure is intentionally made, so pivoting works across weeks, months, years etc. All files contain geographical hierarchy, so data can be viewed by port, country and coastal region.

Attached are brief description of the files and some examples of typical use cases
