|Note on methodology:|
From 2023‑04‑03, our weekly snapshot values are no longer seasonally corrected, which may lead to some
disparities between the preceding and following reports. We have also adjusted our time frame to show totals
since the start of 2023 rather than the start of the invasion.
Dates featured are the date the arrival of the shipment was captured by our algorithm. 80% of arrivals for
shipments are found within 4 days of the arrival portcall in the specific port. For our oil products and chemicals
commodity group, please note this contains a wider range of items than just those specified in the current
sanctions, as of 2022‑02‑05. More information at:
