Did my ship move from the Sea Buoy? Has she docked? Can she dock? Where exactly are the tugs and pilots? Will I stay on schedule? When should I schedule cargo, line handlers, stevedores, and other service providers?

These are just a few of the questions PortVision can answer. Use PortVision to gain new levels of visibility and knowledge about vessel activities on the waterway. View dock availability, real-time vessel locations, and arrival/departure times for any vessel.

Your vessel is inbound. Should you send your crew to the dock? Use PortVision to find out. Through PortVision, view real-time information about all vessels and terminals on the waterway. Then set an e-mail or text message alert to know immediately - as soon as your selected vessel passes a key point-of-interest or arrives/departs a dock.

Schedule labor and other resources based on the real story - without the need for endless e-mails and phone calls to the terminal, pilots, tugs, or agents.

Real-Time Information

  • View a live map of the waterway, which shows current vessel positions, terminals, and points-of-interest.
  • Set a text message or e-mail alert to stay in the know when a vessel arrives, departs, or passes a terminal or point-of-interest. Automatically send alerts to your boss, customer, or marine service providers to enhance communications and customer service and drive maximum efficiency and minimum costs for all.
  • Create your own custom vessel list, and get an instant snapshot of location and status of all vessels on that list, day or night, from any web-enabled PC.
  • Increase your competitive advantage by sharing the power of perfect information on the waterway with your customers.

Historical Reporting

  • Defend claims of dock damage and/or wake damage by documenting and demonstrating speed and position of your vessel at any minute of the day, up to five years in the past.
