WRI's team of experienced Tropical Meteorologists have been forecasting, analyzing, and monitoring Tropical systems for over 50 years.
WRI maintains constant surveillance of the tropical regions of the world,
issuing daily tropical summaries for all the seasonally active major ocean
basins with all of your affected ships listed.
If an area is suspect for tropical development, WRI classifies the system as a "tropical low", and issues
forecast positions and intensity - often 2-3 days ahead of government
agencies. This additional lead time is critical for safe/efficient operations for
your fleet to prepare for any route or itinerary changes. WRI's tropical
advisories are provided in addition to our recommendation for a
safe and efficient route (to minimize any delay).

Vessel's are monitored for any tropical threat several days in advance.
Analysis of all officially classified tropical systems.
Pre-classify systems as Tropical Lows usually 2-3 days before government agencies.

information/details at your request.
