Press Release
Friday, January 18, 2013

Security Exchange signs up CustomWeather as the weather data provider for its online shipping risk product, 'ShipAssure'.

CustomWeather provides key forecast data regarding ocean and wind conditions to support Security Exchange’s identification of opportunities for safest passage and avoidance of pirate attacks at sea.

By incorporating CustomWeather’s 7-day, 3-hourly forecasts for wave height and direction, as well as wind speed and direction into ShipAssure, a web-based vessel tracking and risk system, Security Exchange is able to better assess piracy risk around the globe. Data is provided as map tile layers for use in Security Exchange’s ShipAssure product, via the Google Maps API framework.

Gareth Sephton, Intelligence Analyst at Security Exchange, explains, “ShipAssure incorporates numerous variables in order to offer the best route for safe passage and a key element for safe passage is certainly the wind and wave condition. Weather also plays an important role in the likelihood of any pirate attacks and we are happy to be relying on CustomWeather for that information.”
