FleetMon Explorer has been updated for you!

Having access to global vessel tracking data is vital for almost everyone related to the maritime industry. Traffic analyses, fleet and operations monitoring, logistics and scheduling… whatever you’re in, realtime tracking data allows you to think one step ahead.

The fresh FleetMon Explorer update gives you new tools to assess vessel movements from global scale to port operations, quickly filtering down to what you really want to see!

Discover the handy vessel type and signal age filters, and easily pull up all your personal fleets – now displayed on brilliant new map layers. Look through a choice of our favorite views here or directly open FleetMon Explorer and try it yourself!

FleetMon Explorer - Filter vessels by type

FleetMon introduces a vessel type filter, allowing you to sort the ships on your screen by category. Quickly assess the number of tankers in the Persian Gulf and pleasure crafts in the Mediterranean, or just filter out vessel types that are not relevant for you.


Add vessels of interest to your My Fleet list and create individual tags to categorize your fleet as you choose. FleetMon Explorer fully supports your tagging system and displays your fleet in a separate view.


Activate different weather layers to assess vessel performance and progress. Additional insight into weather situation and forecast at a ship’s position is available on its detail page and will help you to schedule your operations.


From global traffic overview to detailed operations monitoring: Zoom down to see the ships in true dimensions — perfect for following maneuvers in real time on FleetMon’s sea charts.


Use the signal age slider or filter for terrestrial AIS, captured by land-based antennas, if you want to see live vessel movements only. Include satellite AIS data to see ships on high seas and have the signal age displayed directly on the map for quick analysis of the traffic situation.

Like what you see here? Sign-up for a free trial of our satellite-enabled plans on and get a first-hand experience of FleetMon Explorer together with FleetMon’s superior satellite AIS tracking quality, or talk to our sales team to discuss your project!

Today, the FleetMon Support Team was asked to investigate the build date of the vessel MARITIME CENTURY. The information was easy enough to find, so we spent a few additional minutes and checked a bit further. Here is what we discovered on the fly:

The MARITIME CENTURY, a Panamanian-flagged bulk carrier, currently crosses the North Atlantic Ocean and is due to arrive at Amsterdam Port the 25th of November at 5 pm UTC. A quick glance into the vessel’s voyage log as captured via satellites revealed that the vessel’s last port of call was Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, where it arrived after sailing the open sea for 2 weeks. The scheduled time of arrival was fully met and after a few hours in port the MARITIME CENTURY proceeded further north.

Maritime Century's track on the Atlantic Ocean


The online port call history of the ship, just one click away from the detailed vessel track and dating back till October 2011, gave us immediate insight into the intercontinental voyages of the ship. It mainly operated between Australian and East-Asian ports over the last 2 years. On its current voyage it now interlinks the port of Paranagua in Brazil, where it departured the 31st of October, with Europe.
