About Shipping KPI system – New milestone 

In the beginning of July, BIMCO Shipping KPIs reached a new milestone: more than 6,000 ships in the database. The value of the benchmarking information is in direct proportion to the number of ships registered in the system.  

In order to make the Shipping KPI system more user friendly, an API (Application Programming Interface) feature has been developed to integrate Shipping KPI system with external application or software, which assists with transfer of data and information. However, the user must activate this feature and register its use for the security reasons. Information about integrating application and API documentation is available here: https://www.shipping-kpi.org/developers
