Barchart, a leading provider of financial market data and technology, has announced a new partnership with freight news and data leader FreightWaves. The partnership covers the creation of a new Freight Market Center on Barchart.com; providing users with the latest data, content, and news for global freight markets. Additionally, FreightWaves will integrate Barchart’s cmdtyStatsSM database for global economic data and commodity statistics, into their SONAR data platform.
Barchart CEO Mark Haraburda said, “FreightWaves is the most innovative provider of data, content, and news for the transport and logistics industry. Through this partnership we will be able to supply Barchart.com users with accurate news and information for this increasingly important market segment. We are excited to partner with FreightWaves, and provide the SONAR platform with our diverse database of global economic and commodity data – all of which can be visualized, and charted within SONAR.”
“FreightWaves is committed to building a world-class community in freight that uses news, data, and technology to understand and de-risk the market. With the launch of trucking freight futures early next year, the content that we’re creating becomes even more relevant and important to financial market participants. We’re excited to share our news and data with a new audience through our partnership with Barchart,” stated Craig Fuller, Founder and CEO of FreightWaves.
FreightWaves SONAR combines the market intelligence of the FreightWaves team with a data-visualization and analytics toolset that can help data come alive. Technical charts, maps, heat-maps, news, tables, and a knowledge library are all available to SONAR users. SONAR users will now have access to cmdtyStatsSM, the premier solution for fundamental commodity data, information, and statistics.
