You have been receiving Ship ID for some time now in the response of many of the API services.
It is a unique identifier which helps overcome the struggle of tracking vessels with MMSI or IMO. Shipid - a MarineTraffic intelligence product - eliminates duplicates and helps keep track of changes in the most reliable way.
The API services in which the ship ID can be used as a search parameter are the following:
- PS01 - Vessel Historical Track
- PS07 - Single Vessel Positions
- EV01 - Port Calls
- EV02 - Vessel Events
- VD01 - Vessel Photos
- VD02 - Vessel Particulars
- VD03 - Search Vessel
- VI01 - Voyage Forecasts
- VI03 - Port Distances and Routes
- PU01 - Change Fleet
