Additionally, the report provides freight costs, loading volumes, and destination data for Jones Act ships at key terminals, plus an analysis of the market implications of those movements. Paired with Genscape’s PetroRail Report, market participants can closely monitor the supply chain as crude moves from rail to tanker.

Genscape’s North American Waterborne Crude Report also covers movements of crude oil along inland waterways, including activity around the Mississippi River, to provide a more complete data set for transportation, linking crude-by-rail, inland barge data, and waterborne crude.
