Users can compare performance parameters between ships of similar type, tonnage, trades or flag states, while remaining anonymous.
Users can compare 33 different Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)– for example budget performance, ship availability, contained spills and officer retention. The KPIs are based on 64 individual performance indicators.
The data is hosted with an external company, which is independently audited to verify its ability to safeguard the data and BIMCO does not have direct access to the data provided by the participating companies.
Shipping KPI is run by BIMCO on a not-for-profit basis. New users have to pay a sign-up fee, but thereafter, the tool is free for BIMCO members. Non-members have to pay a sign-up fee and thereafter an annual subscription of €1,975.

Veritas Petroleum Services (VPS) publish regular Bunker Alerts based entirely on fuel samples and have kindly permitted BIMCO’s Members to access this information.
The Bunker Alerts are not intended to be an evaluation of overall bunker quality in the port or area concerned, but usually highlight a specific parameter within the fuel which has raised a quality issue.
