The Business Need
A leading information provider based out of the UK wanted to leverage publicly available data related to shipping schedules. They had an impending need to find out how the enterprise can improve by analyzing the disparities between the data provided by them and the data available from public sources and other data operators.
How we solved the problem
Mobito devised a comprehensive automated solution to aggregate ship schedule information. A market analysis was performed to identify new data sources for ship schedule information. The identified sources were categorized into port websites, operator websites, and third-party websites.
The data related to the shipping schedule was aggregated from each of the sources using our home-grown cloud-based crawl platform - Mobito and analyzed for crucial data points like vessel name, IMO number, ship operator name, ETA, etc.
The aggregated data was normalized, de-duplicated, and cleansed and a consolidated data set was generated. The disparities between the current portfolio and collated information were analyzed and a report was given for new areas for growth.
