More than 75.000 vessels
in a vessel database

We combine the AIS real-time data stream with other publicly available vessel data. We spend time and knowledge in cleaning and unifying messy and complex data sets so you can get the most out of the AIS data.

What kind of vessel information can you find in Maritime Optima?

We combine the AIS real-time data stream with other public vessel data. We spend time and knowledge in cleaning and unifying messy and complex data sets so you can get the most out of the AIS data. 

We will use different technologies to analyse the AIS data. You can access most of it as a free users, however we will produce more market insight to those on a Standard and Enterprise subscription.

Vessel data is naturally divided into 5 categories and in Maritime Optima.

1. Public AIS - Dynamic Trading Data

Every second we collect AIS data for more than 75.000 vessels from more than 700 AIS satellites and terrestrial senders. We update the vessel positions every 10th minute. You will find the last port and next port with ETA for the vessels.

You will also find out where the vessels have been trading in the past and whether the vessel most likely performed a laden or a ballast voyage.

2. Technical descriptions

We have collected some technical information on more than 75.000 vessels and sorted the data into questionnaire templates inspired by Q88, Baltic Form, C-Form and B-Form.

Static technical description

Here you will find some technical descriptions of vessels, that never changes throughout the life of a vessel: like information on summer dwt, summer draft, LOA and beam. We collect this data from publicly available pages, and some other data is purchased.

Dynamic Technical Description

You will find information on certificates and expiry dates, insurance, change of ownership, flag, different types of ownership (commercial owner, disponent owner, registered owner, technical manager etc).

We are frequently updating the public vessel description and we have added value by using different technologies for estimating the TPC and speed & performance numbers, which helps you to estimate cargo intake when you do pre-calculations. You can search within the questionnaire templates for any technical description like "dwt" and "cubic".

You can copy any of the public questionnaires and make your private copies.

So if you find the information incorrect you can overwrite it and store the corrected information in your private questionnaire. The information you add will only be available for you and your colleagues.

Within a private questionnaire you will be able to search for any information. You and your colleagues can always access an updated technical description of any vessel. You can use the vessel exchange feature to send sections of the questionnaire to ask like the class or the Technical Manager to help you update the information.

If you want to send technical documentation you can use the vessel exchange and send a pre-filled questionnaire to your bank, insurance company, broker etc.

3. Photos and documents

You can take photos from your mobile and directly attach them to a vessel. You will save a lot of time! If you visit or inspect a vessel you can store the photos in albums and name them, for example "Hamburg visit 20. Aug 2021" or "Dry dock Singapore Oct 2020".

You can store and access any type of documents and attach it to any vessel. If you want to become an Enterprise customer we can sync your documents with Sharepoint/OneDrive.

You can quickly access charterparties, B/L, technical drawings or any other documents attached to any of the vessels.

4. Contact details to your partners

You can add contact details for different types of owners (registered, disponent, commercial, TC owners etc). You can also add contact details for technical owners and crewing agents or contact details for any company or person you need to contact frequently.

Click on the contact details for a vessel to call directly from your mobile.

5. Notes

You can add "a digital note" to any of the vessels from your mobile or web. You can easily search and find your comments later.

Examples of possible notes:

@Pål-Robert: We intend to change crew on this vessel when she arrives in Houston mid August. Please let the technical department know the contract details of the agent as soon as possible.
