Portcalls Info

Overview

Receive a real time overview of the time of arrival and departure of vessels from ports across the world in order to support your users planning of port operations and cargo movement.

The Portcall API has been developed by IPCSA, and has identified the key data elements required to provide visibility and transparency on vessel status in Ports from estimated times to actual times of arrival and departure.

The PortCall API contains available information about a vessel and its voyages within the port, such as:

  • Four Data elements are mandatory to allow requests for information to be made. A requestor requires specifically the UNLOCODE of the port, with the others being used ‘in combination’ with each other to make the request.
    • Identification of the journey
    • LOCODE for the port
    • Identification for the vessel
    • Vessel Name
  • Other data elements are optional and subject to the Data Provider being able to provide the data but includes:
    • Carrier
    • Call Sign
    • Estimated Time of Arrival
    • Actual Time of Arrival
    • Draught of the ship at arrival
    • Estimated Time of Departure
    • Actual Time of Departure
    • Draught of the ship at departure
