What is AIS Vessel Tracking System | Informative video for Exporters | Lime Institute


AIS vessel tracking


An automatic Identification System (AIS) is an automated tracking system whereby transponders fitted to ships automatically provide their position and other information to neighboring ships and coastal authorities. Ships equipped with AIS transponders can be tracked by AIS base stations that gather data to create a near-real-time picture of global shipping traffic. 


There are multiple AIS ship tracking and intelligence providers that have websites on which you can enter the name of the vessel carrying your cargo to get the following details, and more:


  • Current position
  • Local time
  • Area
  • Current port
  • Latitude/Longitude
  • Status
  • AIS Source
  • Speed/Course
  • Nearby vessels
  • Distance Travelled
  • Distance to go
  • Total voyage distance
  • Time to destination


Some such websites are MarineTraffic, FleetMon, ShipFinder, Vesseltracker, and Vesselfinder, among others.
