Consultancy & Research: Maritime and Shipping

Research is central to the service Gibson offers. We provide our brokers and their clients with independent market research and analysis to ensure informed decisions can be made. Our team of analysts collate and interpret statistics from a range of market sources and break these down to provide insight into complex issues and highlight potential opportunities for our clients. Be it IMO 2020, Ballast Water Treatment, or entry into a new market, we help our clients turn data into decisions.

Our consulting is underpinned by our in-house databases and proprietary forecasting models. Extensive databases provide the ability and tools to analyse and predict market trends. The key to our success is the relationship between our analysts and brokers; continuous communication means our brokers are well-positioned to react to and advise upon the latest market data. We strive to provide an independent view of the market, taking advantage of our extensive research and direct contact with the physical shipping markets to create a comprehensive picture.

Our research capabilities range from newbuilding activity and fleet analysis to freight costs and vessel earnings forecasts which are highly in demand by a range of industry stakeholders. We regularly provide both long- and short-term outlooks helping clients to make trading and investment decisions.

Key features of our maritime and shipping consultancy and research service include:

  • Market & vessel data including freight rates, fixtures, prices, technical & commercial data.
  • Freight rate, vessel earnings & shipbuilding forecasts
  • Consulting projects & market studies
  • Weekly & monthly market reports, vessel registers and databases
