No one knows where every vessel in the world is at all times, or remember the location of all ports. Therefore, we have created a search bar that our customers can use to easily find the vessel or port they want to know more about.

How to Search for Vessels or Ports

When you are on the ShipAtlas map you will find the search function at top of the page.

Step 1

1) Click on the search bar, choose whether you want to search for a vessel or a port, then start typing.

Step 2

2) Start typing, and you will notice a list of vessels or ports with matching letter/s will start to appear

You can also search vessels by entering their IMO or MMSI number, whereas for ports UN/Locode can be also used.

To explore more ports in a specific country, simply select the ports option and enter the country name.

When you have found the vessel or port you were searching for click on it and the app will show the vessel or port on your map with its information card.

If you can not see the vessel or port you are searching for, type in more letters to narrow your search.
