FreightWaves SONAR provides users with an unmatched understanding of the Freight Markets
FreightWaves SONAR offers a unique aggregation of multiple, highly disparate freight market data points into one intuitive dashboard tool. Designed for all levels of users from busy freight market executives that need a high level view of multiple data points, to power users and market analysts that need to deeply analyze the whole freight market.
FreightWaves SONAR ingests data from over 150 sources, including key economic, fundamental, transactional, and pricing data-sets that are then coded into time-series based market indices to help users understand the current and future state of the freight market.
FreightWaves SONAR combines the market intelligence of the FreightWaves team with a data-visualization and analytics toolset that can help the data come alive! Technical charts, maps, heat-maps, news, tables, and a knowledge library are all available to SONAR users. Also, SONAR users gain access to the FreightWaves' analysts and economists that can answer questions about what is happening in locales around the market.
SONAR is the first dashboard for the freight market, aggregating millions of data points from hundreds of sources. The dashboard is an analytics platform that provides tools that anyone connected to the freight markets will want to monitor and analyze developments. This includes geo and heat maps, technical charts, commentary, and tables.
But often times clients want to take the fundamental data from SONAR and plug into their own decision and optimization systems. Hedge funds, traders, speculators, trucking companies, freight brokerages, and shippers benefit from the data that has been aggregated into SONAR to make better execution decisions. SONAR APIs can be added to the workflow of client products to help improve market algorithms and decisions.
Only enterprise clients get access to SONAR APIs.
To help technical teams understand the power of the SONAR API, we have developed an API Simulator that will help software engineers design their products around the SONAR data feeds. Any future indices that are added to SONAR will be included into the APIs.
The API simulator works exactly like the production version of the SONAR API, with the exception of offering up actual SONAR data results. To get actual SONAR API results, you must be a registered enterprise client of SONAR.
To sign up for a SONAR Enterprise account, contact your SONAR representative. In the meantime, click on the API Simulator button to play with the APIs.

SONAR truckifies time-series data for the freight markets. By taking in data from across the marketplace and putting it into a visual layer that is presented on a map, a user can compare various markets over-time and understand how different markets are shaping up. Each map has a hover-bubble which allows the user to identify local market conditions of all data-sets by hovering over the local market.
SONAR comes with a technical charting platform that allows users to visualize data in multiple formats and charting types. The data can then be studied using technical studies that help users identify trends and volatility in data-sets. Multiple data-sets can be overlayed, giving the users the ability to compare how different data-sets correlate. Like the mapping tool, all charts are coded for geography, allowing the user to compare multiple markets on the same charts.
