Rhine Flow Service

Our Rhine Flow Service reports provide information on oil products trade flows between the ARA-region and the German, French and Swiss hinterland markets.

Hinterlands markets such as Germany, France and Switzerland consume most of Europe’s oil products. For companies with exposure to Northwest Europe, understanding changes in the supply and demand balance enables good market timing and improves trading performance.

Our report is based on accurate and direct measurement of volumes per barge, our vessel database and other sources enabling accurate determination of Rhine barge volumes. We are able to distinguish between all oil products, like LPG, naphtha, gasoline, jet-fuel, diesel and fuel oil. With this sophisticated information system, companies are able to assess trade flows and anticipate shifts in the market.
