Data currently is tracking service, rotation and capacity data on all
liner services on over 100 trade routes globally. That is over 3,000
individual ocean carrier services operated by 200 carriers.
Over 90% of these 3,000+
services of these services are audited by the ComPair research team on a
5 week cycle or better while the remaining services are audited on a 10
the carriers carriers in ComPair is tracked by a specific researcher
whose familiarity with the carrier their network of services, and the
best sources of service detail of the carrier. This knowledge is applied
to create reliable service and rotation detail which is entered on a
service batch sheet.
service batch sheet is checked by a second researcher before being
entered in the database. Every afternoon, the batch sheets are
then reviewed by the research director who verifies the information was
correctly entered in the database.
Information on all
changes are also forward to ComPair's database editor for a final
This process is then the
starting point for vessel/voyage schedule feed provided to the users of
our Integrated Global Schedules. Whether the schedule data is being
researched and entered manually or being received via EDI feed from the
carrier, the schedule data is vetted against the service rotation data
audited by our researchers.
Finally, we listen to
our customers. Even with all the effort that goes into data accuracy and
reliability, the researchers occasionally miss a modification or
misinterpret the data they are reviewing. Our customers are very good
about letting us know when there is a data error.
