No one knows where every vessel in the world is at all time, 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 learn 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.

Steps to take:

1) Click on the search bar

2) Choose whether you want to search for a vessel or a port.

3) Type the name of the vessel or port.

As soon as you start typing, a list of vessels or ports starting with the same letter you use will appear. If you can not see the vessel or port you are searching for, type in more letters to narrow your search.

4) 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.

Note: You can also search vessels by entering their IMO or MMSI number, whereas for ports UN/Locode can be also used. All you have to do is simply copy and paste the given number/code of the vessel or port into the serach bar field.

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