Freight Investor Services (FIS), a broker of freight and commodity swaps, launched a mobile app that puts the freight and commodity swaps market in the hands of users, wherever they are.

The app combines indicative market prices across the main freight and commodity groups with powerful graphing to display forward curves and historical spot prices. Also included are FIS daily reports for all markets, including closing curves, commentaries, spreads and ratios.

The app is available in both English and Mandarin, and it can be customized to deliver prices, reports and chart data for the commodities and contracts that are of most relevance to users.

FIS Managing Director John Banaszkiewicz said, “Today’s freight and commodity swap markets are unrecognizable from when FIS was founded 10 years ago. We have seen the development of new liquidity, new products, new services like clearing and new entrants who want to access information on the move. The FIS app enables these players to keep up to speed with the market, putting our prices, daily reports and forward curves on a mobile platform for the first time.”

App data includes all the major markets covered by FIS, including dry freight, iron ore, steel and scrap, coking coal, fertilizers and fuel oil. Also included are FIS news updates and full contact details for FIS’ global network.

Available for both iOS and BlackBerry mobile devices, the FIS app from the world’s leading freight and commodity swaps broker keeps users connected to the market wherever they are.
