Real-time Ship Tracking API & ETA

< All Topics

Datalastic API provides ship’s current position and related information such as longitude, altitude, speed, vessel course, vessel destination, and more.

Choose to call only 1 vessel or multiple in 1 database request (aka bulk request). You can simply add the vessels you are interested in tracking directly in the line.

Scroll down to see how to call estimated time of arrival, actual time of departure, current draft and more. 

Parameters:

  • uuid – Vessel UUID
  • mmsi – Vessel MMSI
  • imo – Vessel IMO
