Shipping and Supply Chain Relationships

Identifying the nature of a company’s business relationships is crucial to understanding its business opportunities, correlations, and risk exposure. FactSet supply chain relationship data is built to expose business relationship interconnections among companies globally.

With FactSet supply chain relationship data, you can identify materially related companies and categorize their relationship dependencies. With 13 key company relationship types such as customers, suppliers, competitors, and strategic partners, you can determine the revenue value of a business relationship between two companies, understand how extreme market environments could affect your custom portfolios, and uncover interconnected relationships within and around a stock portfolio that may affect overall performance.


  • Access coverage for 23,400 global companies
  • View direct relationships (relationships disclosed by the reporting company) 
  • View reverse relationships (relationships not disclosed by the reporting company but by companies doing business with the reporting company) 
  • Identify the revenue value of a business relationship between two companies
  • Rely on information that is reviewed by a dedicated research team with daily updates based on new filings, press releases, and corporate actions releases 
  • Trust content based on primary sources, such as company regulatory filings and company websites
  • Track maritime shipping transactions from bills of lading of 200 U.S. ports and 1,000 non-U.S. ports with the Supply Chain Shipping Transactions datafeed. This feed includes cargo content descriptions, departure and arrival ports, and shipper/consignee relationships, associated with maritime freight traffic subject to tracking or taxation by the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP). Using a combination of FactSet’s automated mapping processes and manual oversight, the transaction data is linked to FactSet’s extensive entity database, allowing FactSet to identify shippers, consignees, ports, and carriers. This data can be further linked to existing company data, allowing you to integrate and consume it in meaningful ways.
