Having launched in February 2010, Findaport.com enables the online access of information gathered by Shipping Guides Limited during its 40+ years experience publishing specialised port information.
This comprehensive online resource amalgamates all the information found in our various print and electronic publications, including the highly respected Guide to Port Entry. Over 9,000 ports, harbours, cargo terminals and tanker facilities worldwide are available, including over 5,000 port plans, terminal diagrams, photos and maps.
Our information is researched and updated daily by our team of editors using only authenticated sources such as port authorities, agents and operators. You can be safe in the knowledge that you are accessing the most up-to-date information available to us on the ports you visit.
Findaport.com has been designed to enable easy access to the information that you require whilst maintaining its comprehensive nature. Port information is laid out in a logical sequence with contents headings providing quick access to the information that you need. These include a general description, pre-arrival requirements, max. size, safety and security, communications, berthing operations, cargo and shore facilities, regulations and other local information.
Many entries also benefit from reports of Actual Conditions Experienced (ACE Reports) at given ports and facilities. These invaluable reports (nearly 2,500 in total), supplied by shipmasters, officers and others at the front end of the maritime industry, provide a unique insight into the facilities and conditions encountered by fellow seafarers.
With both basic and advanced searching capabilities you can search using not only the name or country of the port, but also a geographical location, port facilities, cargo facilities or dry dock facilities. Further to this, the ability to save your searches and favourite ports on your own personal dashboard means you can tailor findaport.com to suit your personal port information needs.
