True Bearing Insights brings together expertise from shipping and commodity markets, with the skills and tools of data-scientists.

Together we use the power of machine learning and advanced predictive data analytics to improve near term forecast accuracy and commercial outcomes for our customers in the bulk shipping and commodity markets.

True Bearing Insights, Inc. is founded on the belief that the more we learn, the more we realize there is to know. Our objective is to create value from the insights we gain through a structured approach to testing new ideas and assumptions.

We believe that technology and computing power have advanced sufficiently to process vast amounts of data (structured, unstructured, geospatial, quantitative, and qualitative) to improve near term forecast accuracy over traditional forecasting methods.
