Inventory levels

are a key driver of commodity prices, but this type of data is often kept from the public domain. Moreover, the inventory position across an entire supply chain involves different owners and types of facilities, from mine sites to export and import port terminals.

Technology

The Supply Tracker relies on high-resolution optical imagery taken a few seconds apart to create stereo images of stockpiles. These images are then used to build 3D models, which are then used to create a time series expressed as a volume or mass, depending on the density factor of the relevant commodity.

Use case

Newcastle Coal Terminal

Kayrros mapped the Newcastle coal facility and segmented the different stockyards before creating 3D models of every stockpile using satellite imagery and proprietary computer vision models. The time series of the 3D models was converted into a single time series expressed in tons of coal. The ability to compare current inventory levels with historical averages at one of the largest export terminals in the world is crucial to the fundamental analysis of the global coal market.
