Kpler, the commodity data and analytics firm, has expanded its coverage of the dry bulk markets to include agricultural commodities.

The Francois Cazor-led company claims the move brings real-time visibility to 90% of the global seaborne trade across more than 17 food and feed commodities, including wheat, corn, barley, soybeans and soybean meal.

Recent supply disruptions, such as the war in Ukraine and global inflation, coupled with the need to track the resilience of the food security supply chain were key drivers behind the move, the company said.
