Container Tracking + Unlimited Access
What’s Container Tracking for?
Tracking containers and displaying ship locations on the map, of course! All you need to do is write your shipment details in a search bar, the system will take care of the rest.
What’s the information based on?
It is based on information provided by shipping lines and additional data from AIS (Automatic Identification System)
Is this a paid service?
Container tracking is free to use for our visitors and customers. We also offer installing it on the websites of our partners as a web application.
Our container tracking system allows us to determine the current position of a given container on the world map. It also processes port data and calculates time spent in port of congestion. To track the location of the container, just specify its number and shipping line. The results of your search will show the current container location. You can receive more detailed information if by clicking on the picture in the interface (example on the right).
For carriers, a container tracking system isn’t just a convenient tool to satisfy curiosity – it’s a customer retention device. If your website has container tracking installed, your clients become much more engaged in the shipping process. This level of control will help feel safer about your services and make shippers more likely to arrange freight with you.
OAs an added bonus, the SeaRates tracking system also transfers data from Automatic Identification System (AIS). It is an automated tracking system used on ships and vessel traffic services (VTS) to identify and locate objects by electronically exchanging data with other AIS stations nearby (ships, satellites, bases). In case of satellites, the term Satellite AIS (SAIS) is applied. While regular marine radars still operate as a primary method of collision avoidance for water transport, data provided by this system supplements them quite effectively. Utilizing AIS allows our container tracking system to bring you the most precise information available.
