    Dear Andrew,

    Thank you for contacting MarineTraffic.

    Having looked further into the vessel 's past positions, I can see that indeed on 15-02-2019 at 21:13 LT (UTC +2), she arrival at Suez South Anchorage, which was properly shown in MarineTraffic.

    Since I cannot reproduce the issue, I assume that you were not able to see the updated positions of the vessel, as they had been all received via satellite.

    Please let me inform you that all MarineTraffic users have access to positions recorded by our network of terrestrial stations. We are glad to say that we have the largest network of its kind in the world!
    When you do not see updated positions and get the message "out of range", then the vessel is far away from terrestrial stations and can only be tracked via satellite. This is available with our satellite services, the SAT Flexible and the SAT Global.
    Satellite tracking keeps you informed of a vessel’s progress during ocean crossings, whilst you continue to benefit from more frequent updates for vessels closer to shore and during port operations.
    You can learn more about the satellite services in the following pages:

    From what I can see during the period you mentioned, we were constantly receiving satellite positions for Cosco Shipping Scorpio.

    I hope this helps you understand the situation.
    Please let me know if you have any further questions and I will be happy to assist you.

    Kind regards,
