Create Notifications

Enter the My Account section and click on the My Notifications option.

Then, click on the Create Notification tab.


Now, you are able to use the Notification Wizard in order to create the notifications of your choice.



Start by selecting the assets you wish to associate with the notifications you are about to create.

Note that assets are divided into two main categories - VESSELS and PORTS / AREAS.

This way you are able to create notifications for:

  • VESSELS: a specific vessel, a MarineTraffic Fleet or by Vessel Type or Size (in terms of Capacity)
  • PORTS / AREAS: a specific Port, a Standard Area or a Custom Area
  • a VESSELS and PORTS / AREAS combination (one per category)


Once you have made your selection, click on the Continue button to advance. 



All the available notifications will be displayed. Choose the ones you wish to associate to the assets you have selected in the previous step to be getting the relevant information. You can set multiple notifications at once which will be bound to your assets of choice. This way, you will not have to repeat the same process for each notification. 


Note I: The available notifications will vary depending on your selection of assets - those that cannot be selected will be greyed out.


Simply, click on the notifications you are interested in to select them. The selected ones will be highlighted in blue (clicking once again on the same notification will result in de-selecting it). 


Some notifications contain user-defined variables. When selecting such notifications make sure that you have provided MarineTraffic with accepted values in the related fields.


When you have selected the notifications of your choice, click on the Continue button to advance.



After having selected your notifications, it is time to define the way you want to be informed. You have to select at least one of the available communication channels.


The communication channels of your choice will be highlighted in blue. Once you are ready, click on the Continue button to advance.



In this, final step you can review the selections you have made in the previous ones. 


If you are satisfied with your set-up, click on the Save button to confirm. Upon confirmation, the notifications of your choice will be activated.


Note II: In case you wish to make any changes during the creation process, you may click on the RESET button to start over - this option is available in every step of the Notifications Wizard.
