In the launch of their new research series, The Mississippi Monitor, the RBC Capital Markets Digital Intelligence Strategy team uses geospatial intelligence from Orbital Insight utilizing real-time AIS data to quantify and track ship congestion. The analysis shows where and how much navigation times have spiked in recent days along the Mississippi River - corroborating reports of blockages and growing queues due to historically low regional water levels. Real-time monitors indicate where river transport operations are being impacted. Included: Commodity market read-throughs and implications for the agriculture and energy sectors, and others.
