The Goal:

Xeneta is transforming the shipping industry as the leading ocean freight rate benchmarking and market intelligence platform. The company’s powerful reporting and analytics platform provides liner-shipping stakeholders with the data they need to understand current and historical market behavior, reporting live on market average and low/high movements for both short and long-term contracts. Xeneta is privately held and headquartered in Oslo, Norway with regional offices in New York and Hamburg.

Impressed by the top-tier media coverage Trust Relations generated, Xeneta reengaged with the agency for a broader, longer-term public relations program.
