About Us

How we can help you

Vessel tracking

We track vessels all over the world, whether at sea or in port. The MariTrace platform tells you exactly where a ship is, and what is going on around it. Weather changing? Piracy risk ahead? We know about it as it happens, which means you, and your vessel, do too.


MariTrace offers more than just passive tracking. Levels of customisation, and active features such as geofencing and text alerting mean you can set up a proactive monitoring system that suits the need of you and your clients.

The MariTrace platform

MariTrace offers more than just passive tracking...

Real-time Satellite AIS Vessel tracking

We monitor hundreds of thousands of vessels worldwide, from tugs to tankers. With our intuitive interface, it’s simple to find vessels of interest and start tracking them.

Advanced Map interface

We use an intuitive map interface that can be enhanced with 40 different data overlays, giving you and your company real insight into the changing nature of the maritime and business environment.

Advanced filtering

Using our advanced filtering techniques, you can search the entire world fleet to find all vessels of interest to you, your business, or your competition.

Vessel database

Our vessels aren’t just dots on a map. Each vessel within MariTrace comes with up to 35 data-points and any number of historic data-points such as positions, draught changes and port calls.

Port database

We continuously monitor over 4,000 ports worldwide for vessel movements, weather, characteristics, and country-data and allow you to save your own data on ports directly within the interface.

Custom Geo-fences

Use MariTrace to draw directly onto the map and create custom geo-fences that can be used to identify places of interest. In conjunction with the alerts and advanced filtering tools, as well as our business information tools, geo-fences give extreme flexibility and infinite configurability for the user.


MariTrace can notify you by email or SMS for up to 14 different types of alert, from knowing when your vessel’s ETA has been amended, to being informed when vessels of certain characteristics enter or leave any area you define.

Piracy Database and Risk Assessment

Complete access to our proprietary database of over 8,000 piracy incidents worldwide, including the ability to filter, view the incidents on a map, as a heat-map, in charts or in graphs. We provide all the information required to successfully plan a voyage: utilising everything from traffic density to security threats to help you understand the risk profile of a trip.

Transit planning

Using MariTrace’s transit planning tools allows you to pinpoint exactly when your fleet is oversubscribed or undersubscribed at any given time and allocate resources accordingly. Once a transit is complete, you can view and report on the entire transit, or identify when vessels have been spending too much time in port.
