Independent Market Intelligence 

Enabling intelligent business decisions for the energy and chemical industry.


Wherever you work in the transportation of oil products over inland waterways, you need insights and up-to-date information on the going barge freight rates. Only then can you be sure you are making the right deal.

PJK International’s Barge Freight Rates Reports provide information on freight rate levels for transporting oil products by inland tanker barges. Our barge freight rates are recognized as benchmark prices for transport of oil products within the ARA (Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp) region, and from ARA up and down the river Rhine to destinations in Germany, France, and Switzerland. The freight rates are based upon actual spot deals and published daily.

Our freight rates help the transport and shipping market become more transparent in an objective manner. We get our information directly from sources on the ground up every day – we consult directly with freight traders, barge operators, brokers, and ship owners for their analysis of this specific market and to get information on closed deals.

And we dig down to get the details. How many deals were made for which products? What are the sizes of the deals being made? What are current trends and historical data in supply and demand? Which vessel sizes are required. How are current conditions affecting the type of barge being used? And so much more.

Do you want to make the transition from a fossil based to a sustainable future, based on transparent and actionable data, but you lack the resources to do so? At Insights Global it is our mission to improve and guide companies in the energy and chemical markets to make this transition by providing a wide range of data services, analytical reports, software tools, consultancy services and training courses. As such, we enable stakeholders on daily basis with invaluable insights and market transparency to make intelligence business decisions.


When you need to understand the balance between supply and demand in the European oil products industry, regular and reliable data is key. It can mean all the difference when you need to make the right decisions as a trader or financial analyst.

The Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp region, or ARA region, is one of the world’s primary oil hubs thanks to its physical infrastructure, pricing benchmarks, and massive oil consumption. Profound insight into ARA oil product stock level changes and/or changes in the supply and demand balance provides traders and financial analysts with valuable information for making better trading or operational decisions. It also gives you the tools to be able to mitigate risks.

Our report covers inventory levels in ARA for:

  • Naphtha
  • Gasoline
  • Jet-Kerosene
  • Diesel/Gasoil
  • Fuel oil stock levels

The report is published in real-time, so no-time lag between data gathering and publication. How are we able to do this? Because the information originates from the storage company’s own inventory management system.

We believe in the decisive benefits of transparency.

Everything we do should increase this transparency. However, we fully realize and respect the sensitivity of certain data. Therefore, in circumstances where it is not advisable to disclose information, we will act based on non-disclosure agreements, privacy and trust.
