Can VIZION track containers via AIS?

Vizion uses AIS (Automatic Identification System) data to enrich milestone data and predict ETAs.

Vizion's API is able to report AIS milestones and make predictions based on AIS data. Our first release was in Q1 of 2022 to all customers and we have more features in mind on our roadmap

AIS Milestones

Presently we report on two AIS Milestones:

  • "Vessel departed"
  • "Estimated vessel arrival"

Arrival Events

Vizion's API provides estimated arrival events based on AIS location data and proximity to port. 

AIS milestones do not differentiate container final destination ports from other vessel ports of call. We have some additional information on this here.

Note:

Vizion's arrival events are not currently able to account for delays to berth due to port traffic.
