Panjiva Unveils New Research Offering to Provide Insight into Global Trade

At a time of tremendous upheaval in the landscape of global trade, tech company leverages human intuition to make sense of big data

NEW YORK--()--Panjiva, the intelligence platform trusted by the global trade community, has launched a new service offering, Panjiva Research, to provide business and investment industry professionals with data-driven global trade insights critical for guiding decision-making processes. Panjiva Research uniquely combines data and technology with human analysis to make sense of global trade data against the context of business, economic and political events and trends – offering comprehensive, yet digestible, intelligence for every user.

Global trade is a $17 trillion industry with the potential to connect the business and investment communities with opportunity. However, many decision-makers today struggle to make the most of this opportunity – and spot risks – because they lack the insights needed to understand market trends and issues.

“There’s no shortage of data in today’s business world,” said Josh Green, CEO, Panjiva. “The challenge that organizations face is using the data to glean insights that can steer their decision-making processes. Because global trade sits at the intersection of the business and investment markets, we saw a huge opportunity to serve both groups with a solution that combines data with human intellect – delivering a holistic, easy-to-understand view into the world of global trade.”

Panjiva Research is comprised of:

  • A daily newsletter, the Panjiva Daily, which combines global trade news and events with data-driven insights to provide a curated overview of what is going on in the world of trade
  • A searchable platform that hosts a growing library of more than 700 articles offering concise, visual, data-driven insights into industry trends and events

The Research initiative is being led by Chris Rogers, who most recently served as international trade analyst and global editorial manager at Bloomberg Intelligence. Rogers has already demonstrated his unparalleled market expertise through the tremendous popularity of the Panjiva Daily, which is distributed to 10,000 subscribers every day.

The data-driven insights featured in the Daily have played an important role in shaping the dialogue on a diverse range of topics, including ammunition, GoPro’s profit warning and the Hanjin Shipping crisis. By looking at trade activity related to these and other timely topics, Panjiva Research serves not only as a means to identify opportunities and challenges, but to also secure early glimpses into trends. The content is regularly cited by media outlets including the Associated Press, CNNMoney and the Wall Street Journal.

“The early response to Panjiva Research has been amazing,” said Rogers. “The solution’s success is validation that people with a stake in global trade are not necessarily data natives; they require market context and industry narratives to understand market trends and where opportunities or potential challenges lie. As we continue to build out the platform, I look forward to working with more decision-makers and market influencers who see value from our unique approach turning raw data into easy-to-understand stories about global trade.”
