Weathernews Inc.

Weathernews Inc. is the world's largest private weather service company headquartered in Japan with offices across the world. 

As part of its global shipping business Weathernews has been analysing the extent of 'ice concentration' along the Northern Sea Route for many years.  Because of the increasing Arctic ice melt Weathernews has understood that in the future the Northern Sea Route will become a genuine alternative to longer and more costly routes such as the Suez Canal and the Cape of Good Hope. 

With this in mind Weathernews provides both observed and forecasted information concerning ice concentration along the Northern Sea Route www.arctic-lio.com/nsr_ice
