A superior business intelligence service for the freight markets, Platts cFlow via MarketView® Desktop™ provides a complete picture of the shipping markets for energy traders, analysts and operations teams. Platts is a leading global provider of energy, petrochemicals, metals and agriculture information and a premier source of benchmark price assessments for those commodity markets.
