In an effort to make the My Fleet list synchronisation a smooth experience, we have combined the different lists of FleetMon.com website, the FleetMon Explorer and the FleetMon mobile iPhone AIS app into one for you.
Our power users may note additional vessels in their list. These vessels have been copied automatically during the merging process from the other lists in order to make sure that none of your valuable settings is lost. In case you see additional vessels on your list, you may safely remove the ones that you do not need any more.
Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions or need help!

Croatian bulk carrier SPLIT arrived in the Belgian port of Ghent a few days ago. What is its cargo, where did it come from?
FleetMon knows: It carried agricultural commodities. Our new Agricultural Commodities Trading Database holds records on bulk shipments of over 90 different commodities between over 100 countries. Both past and current shipments are listed, and it is easy as usual on FleetMon.com to drill down the results and look for a specific ship, a certain commodity group, or shipments to a certain port or market.
So, what do we know about SPLIT’s cargo? Pull up the database, and here we are: It carried 27’500 tons of rapeseed from the Ukrainian port of Odessa to the Western European market. Awaited on 2012-10-25, it arrived well on time.
Did SPLIT engage in other transports of agricultural commodities over the last months? Which ports does it call to regularly? And what other goods are going to be shipped from Odessa to Belgium? What quantities of sunflower seeds are currently under way? All these question can be readily answered with the database.
The close integration with the FleetMon Vessel Database and AIS tracking opens undreamt-of possibilities in the analysis of commodity trades. Up-to-date position information allows to make informed decisions and react early on delays, ETA changes and incidents.
We are proud to offer our users this fantastic new perspective on the world’s commodity flows today. To access the database, just subscribe to our Agricultural Commodities service via the order page (not included in FleetMon.com Pro or Unlimited plans) or request a free trial.

In a new case of piracy in the Golf of Guinea, Greek tanker ORFEAS disappeared from the screens and remained unreachable for three long days. It must have been dreadful hours for the crew, their families and the ship managment. Pirates had hijacked the vessel transporting 35,000 tons of gasoline to Abidjan in the Ivory Coast.
Obviously, navigation equipment had been cut down on the vessel, so it could no longer be detected by AIS, neither terrestrial nor satellite, or contacted via Inmarsat. While “invisible”, the vessel crossed the Gulf of Guinea sailing some 650 nautical miles until it popped up again on Oct 9th, when the pirates finally released the ship with crew in good health, having stolen part of the cargo (see our news coverage).
