ShipIntel Essentials

The must-have maritime AI-based AIS toolbox

A suite of smart maritime intelligence tools based on AIS and AI, for any type of company involved in maritime business.

Dynamic search and vessel lists

People focusing on maritime business need to find vessels and create lists of vessels.

These lists might be based on static technical information like dwt, year built etc. or based on which company is their technical ship manager, or commercial owner, or based on their trading pattern or current positions (like: dry cargo vessels in the Pacific on their way to China) and condition (like: in laden or ballast).

When the lists are made and saved you can be notified about changes in your lists; if vessels change the compass course or speed, new vessels match your dynamic search, or vessels “leave” your lists, if they arrive or depart at an anchorage, port or berth.

Build your own AIS-based CRM system

Bulk upload your existing contact book (ex from Microsoft Outlook) and tag them to vessels or ports.

Connect a company, company type, the contact person within the company and their phone numbers and email adresses to a list of vessels.

Find where these vessels are right now in a map and to which port they are heading. Get notifications when vessels arrive or depart anchorages or ports.

Call from your mobile phone on WhatsApp by searching for vessels or ports.

Find where these vessels have been trading in the past, and attach documents, photos and notes.

Sales & surveyors in one team

One solution helping you connect your sales people and colleagues on site. Sync or add installation instructions and maintenance schedules and plans, check lists etc. to vessels so your colleagues on site can plan and execute their work efficient.

When the work is done the people on the site can document their work on the go by shooting photos, ticking off the check list and adding notes directly attached to the vessel.

The sales people will then immediately be notified that the job has been done, what has been done and in which port the work has been done and have the documentation ready for the customers.

Plan your logistics

You might be serving car carriers, cruise vessels and container vessels following a schedule, together with vessels trading in the spot market that don't follow a fixed schedule, making it harder to plan when and where to visit the vessels to execute repairs and services.

In ShipIntel Essentials you can create vessel list based on static technical descriptions, current operations and your clients contacts.

Get the estimated destination (port) and ETA to the port, and be notified if anything changes.

Tailor your map

Benefit from ShipIntel's in-house high quality live and historical AIS data, ensuring the latest maritime insights whether you're on the go or in the office. Easily find the lat long coordinates, timestamp, current speed, whether the vessel is in ballast or laden condition, last port and next port.

Delve into vessels' historical trading patterns, and receive insights into past voyages and frequented ports, helping you better understand where the vessels will be trading in the future.

Add daily updated weather and layers of  information like war zones, ECA zones,  judicial maritime zones etc. and use the sea route calculator to estimate the different sea route alternatives.

Don't listen to us, listen to our customers


We decided to change over to ShipIntel because it is a great and user-friendly ship tracking system with so much more. With over 50 vessels in our ship project finance portfolio, we need ship details, alerts, port info, traffic statuses and trends all the time. ShipIntel is a tool that easily gives us such information and connects our team.
