Warm greetings to all new AIS partners and contributors who joined the FleetMon community recently! Many major ports and prominent waterways have been included into FleetMon’s AIS network thanks to your help and support, such as:
AIS coverage could be furthermore improved for Melbourne, Buenos Aires, Hong Kong and the Saaler Bay near Rostock.
Every AIS contribution is highly appreciated and happily welcomed. So do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to bring AIS coverage to your port!
We have been frequently asked if you can export vessel data from the FleetMon database – and since lately – we can happily answer with “Yes, you can!”.
Download FleetMon Database reports to:
- Retrieve vessel lists including detailed ship type, dimensions, position, deadweight and gross tonnage to complete and update your own databases and applications
- Analyze the occupancy rate of ports with individual reports generated from the port’s vessel arrival and departure history
- Download the port call histories of the ships of your interest for own traffic visualizations
- Or simply use the FleetMon Database Reports to store vital information at your end.
Reports can be generated and downloaded in Excel or CSV files from the following tables:
- FleetMon Vessel Database, containing over 391.000 ships
- Vessels in Port, listing the vessels currently moored in a specific port
- Port Call History, containing historic ship arrival and departure information for a specific port
- Port Call Log, reflecting the ports visited by a vessel in the past (coming soon)
The download of FleetMon Database Reports is fully independent from your account status as it is a pay-per-use service. Just get yourself some FleetMon Credit Points and start compiling your individual reports. Data that is scrambled online due to your account settings will of course be fully readable in the downloaded file!
Feel free to post us your feedback, questions or suggestions, and read on to learn how to download your FleetMon Database Report:
Visit one of the database tables from that you want to generate a report. Use the different filters available on top of the table to compile a list that meets with your requirements. Now choose the preferred file format by clicking the corresponding button below the table. The Report Generator fully respects your filter settings and calculates the necessary number of credit points for you. Use the link to the Credit Point Info and Purchase should your credit point balance do not suffice to generate the desired report.
By the way, generated Reports are archived in your personal Account Settings for a period of 7 days and can be downloaded again from there:
Good news: FleetMon’s AIS coverage is back to normal after the malicious attacks on the FleetMon servers over the weekend. Thanks to all partners who supported us, and thanks to all FleetMon users for their understanding. We are now better geared to resist such attacks should they appear again in the future.
Starting Saturday evening 16:00 UTC, the FleetMon system finds itself under attack from unknown sources in the Internet that aim to interrupt or stop FleetMon’s services. While our servers have been successfully stabilized in the meantime, AIS reception is affected and not yet back to normal level. Thank you very much for your understanding.
We are working hard to block this kind of attack and identify the source, hopefully restoring full FleetMon coverage during Monday.
Update: AIS Coverage has been fully restored in the meantime. See our following blog post.

FleetMon’s My Fleet list is a great way to keep track of the ships you are interested in. My Fleet provides you with a fleet position overview at a glance on the map, both in your browser or on your mobile. And what’s more, the FleetMon start page and the daily e-mail report give you a concise summary of what has happened overnight in your “fleet”.
So, now you started collecting all ships of interest in your My Fleet – excellent! The FleetMon Pro and Unlimited accounts have plenty of space for you. But how to stay organized as your list grows?
We just introduced the My Fleet tag system for this purpose, which lets you sort and categories all entries in your list in a most flexible way:
- Agents and suppliers: Organize your list by client, by status, by port of call, by week of arrival, …
- Brokers: Organize by owner, type, tonnage, probability, interests, …
- Ship spotters and ship lovers: Your favorite coasters from the 1980ies, Icelandic fisher boats, Swedish Navy Ships, …
- Ship managers: Organize your fleet by type, by charterer, by department, by size, by year of built, … – and why not keep a list of competitor X and competitor Y?
You name it, everything is possible. You can assign the same ship to multiple tags; and multiple ships to the same tag.
The tag system adopts perfectly to the way YOU think and work.
Here is how:
Add tags when adding a vessel to your watchlist…
…so you can easily filter your My Fleet for those ships you are interested in.
Edit and assign tags from within My Fleet by clicking the “tag” icon in the rightmost column. FleetMon suggests tags that you are already using so that you don’t have to repeat yourself.
Now, go ahead, try the new organization system and make it part of your everyday work!
Don’t hesitate to let us have your comments and wishes, we are always happy to hear your feedback.
At the beginning of February 2013 the queen of container vessels, Emma Maersk
- one of the largest cargo ships in the word, had to break off its voyage to Asia. Being in the waters of the Suez Canal the danish ship sustained damages to the main engine
due to inrushing water. Fortunately, there was no real danger of sinking and no pollution reported.
The ship was initially evacuated to the quay at Suez Canal Container Terminal and several investigations were held. Its seems that the leakage was caused by a failure of the stern thruster propeller blades that cracked the ship’s hull and resulted in the flooding of the engine room.
In the meanwhile Emma Maersk was towed to Sicily island and is moored in Palermo since the 25th of February. In accordance to the owner Maersk Line it is probably a matter of months before the vessel can enter into service again.
Detailed information about the accident as well as several screenshots showing the transfer of Emma Maersk are available in the ship’s wiki section, which you can find on the bottom of the datasheet.
