Partnership with Spire Supports Digital Adoption of Data Within the Maritime Industry

Vancouver, B.C., December 2, 2021. MineHub Technologies Inc. (TSXV: MHUB, OTCQB: MHUBF) (“MineHub” or the “Company”), an open enterprise-grade platform for digital trade in the mining and metals supply chains, is pleased to announce it will use Spire Global Inc’s (NYSE: SPIR) (“Spire”) satellite and terrestrial Automatic Identification System data (AIS), global vessel tracking data and vessel characteristics, to help power its commodities platform and optimize routing for bulk carrier vessels. This partnership will bring improved vessel data efficiency across the open ocean to the mining and metals supply chains.

Arnoud Star Busman, CEO, MineHub stated, “Providing our users with 24/7 real-time visibility of the location of the materials they are shipping, buying or financing is a fundamental part of the data we put at their fingertips. It allows them to optimize stock levels, monitor the cargo they are financing, and forecast payment flows. Working with Spire, a leading provider of this core data service, helps us get space-based vessel data right from the source with global coverage. We intend to grow this partnership through collaboration and joint innovation in the fast moving space of digital trade.”

MineHub’s digital platform is modernizing how the mining and metals supply chain operates. They provide greater transparency and traceability via real-time visibility, automation, streamlined credit management, paperless transactions, and emissions tracking. Spire’s AIS data will enhance coverage and reduce latency of tracking bulk vessels on MineHub’s integrated supply chain platform. The use of data and analytics allows for quicker decision making and shorter processes, ultimately saving MinHub’s customers time and money.

“Recently we’ve seen supply chains being strained across the globe and Spire’s Maritime data solutions can help support fixing the disruption by providing route visibility, analyzing fleet and vessel characteristics, and monitoring commodity trends,” said John Lusk, SVP and Maritime GM of Spire Global. “We are excited to partner with MineHub and provide cutting edge data to their platform because both companies are aligned on the increasing need to create digital solutions that create visibility and improve accuracy across the supply chain.”
