Maritime intelligence driven by knowledge and quality data

Every second we collect raw AIS data for the global merchant fleet from more than 700 AIS satellites, terrestrial senders, and dynamic AIS sources. We combine these AIS data sources with technical descriptions of the ships, information about ports, and marine data acquired from public sources and partners.

Each day we collect marine weather data, sea ice data, piracy news and tides from satellites, and we map the vessels' activities in the ports where the merchant vessels trade.

We spend time and knowledge in data wrangling, cleaning, and unifying and processing messy and complex data sets so you should get the most out of the data.

Together with the sea route calculator where you can route from any vessels's AIS position to any port, the AIS data platform is the backbone of our smart maritime software products.

What people say about us

“As Chairman of EuroGreen Maritime, a startup ship-owning company, we are studying dual fuel alternatives and all technical solutions available to reduce emissions. We frequently use Maritime Optima to understand trading patterns of particular vessel types, ports where dual fuels are or will be available, fleets and age distribution, and historical weather on specific routes. We find both the product and the team in Maritime Optima super user-friendly, knowledgeable and supportive. We highly recommend Maritime Optima as your preferred maritime software partner.”

“Digitization is still in its early stages in shipping, and Maritime Optima is in the forefront of this ongoing process. With deep understanding for the shipping business and technology, hard work and willingness to adapt to input from customers, this solution is a one-stop provider that also provides for individual preferences on all platforms like no other system. Thats why I decided to invest in the company, involve myself and introduce Maritime Optima to my network.”

“We joined this research & development project because it is exciting with a start-up environment combining industry experience and digital expertise. We have learnt through the Covid-19 period that we have to work a little differently in the future so the timing to attend this project was very good. We wanted to work with a start up that stays in the future and that has the ability to succeed. Working with the Maritime Optima team has been instructive, and we look forward to continuing. We fully believe in projects that combine industry experience with digital competence will provide the highest utility value.”
