The world's merchant fleet at your fingertips

We collect raw AIS data every second from more than 700 AIS satellites and terrestrial senders, and dynamic AIS data sources. All vessels have Class A senders, valid IMO and MMSI numbers. We map changes in IMO or MMSI numbers when a vessel change name, flag, or ownership. You will find a short technical description attached to each vessel.

Find where the vessels have been trading in the past, their present position, where they are heading, whether we assume they are in ballast or laden condition, and their speed.
