How to explore: Port Calls

You can use our Data Exploration Tool to explore all the port calls in the world. Apply filters based on various vessel particulars to limit results to the exact shipping market segment of interest. 

To search for Port Calls click on the Explore Data tab on the Main Menu and then select the Arrivals & Departures option.

This will take you straight to the Expected Arrival Section. You can use the Sidebar to quickly change between a number of available options, such as Vessels, Ports and more.


If you are looking for a vessel's port call or all port calls within a port, you can use the quick search bar using their name.

If you are looking for more specific data, our vast selection of filters can help you with that. Just click on the Add Filter button and a drop-down menu will appear. The first options are the most popular ones. Each filter added will appear in a box next to the Add Filter button. You can remove the filter any time by clicking on the X button next to it.

Note I: If you purchased the Vessel Particulars Service, the Voyage Data Service or the MarineTraffic Essential Bundle, a number of really interesting filters will be unlocked in this section.

After selecting your filters, the results will appear below. By default, a number of the most popular results will appear. However, it is easier than ever to select what you want to see. You can hold and drag any of the result columns to re-position and sort them how you want.

Moreover, you can click on the Cogwheel icon on the right to add or remove columns from your view and choose your prefered Time Zone.

Now, to the far right of every result, you will notice a button with 3 vertical lines. Clicking on that will provide you with more actions for every result. For the Port Calls, you have a number of interesting actions, such as to create a notification for the port or the vessel, show it on the Map or go to the port's or vessel's detail page.

There are some important information and actions at the bottom of the page which:

  • inform you about the total number of records found that match your search criteria
  • enable you to navigate through search results pages by entering a page number or selecting the next or previous one
  • let you decide on the desired amount of search results per page (20/50)

Last but not least you can export the data you have searched for with a click of a button. As soon as you get your results from your specific search, you can export all of them by clicking on the Export button on the right-hand side, above the results. A drop-down menu will appear, giving you information about the process you are about to complete.


Alternatively, you can now select some of them, by clicking on the adjacent button of each result, on the left side. The selected will appear green and a new button will appear on the button that reads Export Data. Click on it to export the selected.
