Petro-Logistics has two clear advantages over competitors. The first would be the use of “on ground” sources or sources that have access to information that may not be revealed by satellite or other tracking devices. The second is providing information not only on exports but production and domestic consumption.

While new satellite services have emerged tracking tankers, the diligence of Petro-logistics’ team in assessing the state of individual cargoes through extensive network are of great value-added.
