Cluster Analysis Case Study with ApiraSol Shipments Monitoring Suite
ApiraSol Cluster Analysis helps to uncover hidden relationships
between suspicious companies, be it via contact details, physical addresses or due to a
trade relationship (importer, producer, consignee, etc.).
For the Food & Beverage Industry, we were asked to identify the whole supply chain involved in a
specific counterfeit product. We combined Online Monitoring with intelligence from Shipment
records and Supermarket Monitoring to identify the different companies involved and uncover
all hidden relationships.
The result: the identification of Counterfeit Manufacturer, its overseas importer partner,
supermarkets involved and all other counterfeit versions that our client did not know about.
Time needed: 2 weeks.
Budget: a fraction of what local, regional investigators would cost.
