financing, and avoid the likely criminal, reputational, and
commercial damage that would occur as a result of non-
compliance, many organisations with exposures to shipping and
cargoes are incorporating ship tracking services into their risk

Reveal a ship’s current and past exposure to risk with
PurpleTRAC, the automated risk management and
sanctions compliance solution
Simply enter the details of a ship and PurpleTRAC will automatically screen it and its associates against a
comprehensive range of global economic sanctions lists and Port State Control detention & deficiency lists, track
its physical movements and continually monitor its exposure to risk.
PurpleTRAC actively monitors ships on a continuous or voyage-based basis.
Hybrid track technology: Combines data from multiple satellite
tracking services into a single coherent position track.
Detection & alerts: Actively monitors the ship’s movements for key
pre-defined events (e.g. approach to high-risk areas).
Daily screening: Daily screening of the ship and its associates against
a comprehensive set of trade compliance lists (including over 400 economic sanctions,
embargoes and denied party lists).
MaRisk piracy intelligence: Near real-time alerts of incidents such as piracy,
terrorism, insurgency and other maritime crime around the world (optional extra).
Provided in association with Risk Intelligence.
PurpleTRAC screens the ship and its associated group beneficial owner,
registered owner, operator, ship manager, and technical manager against a
comprehensive range of international sanctions lists:
Global sanctions list: Screens the ship and its associates against a comprehensive
set of trade compliance lists (including over 400 economic sanctions, embargoes and
denied party lists).
Country sanctions check: Checks the flag of the ship and the country of domicile,
country of control and country of registration of its associated group beneficial owner,
registered owner, operator, ship manager and technical manager.
Flag State, Class Society, and Ship Quality Performance: Screens the ship
against a range of flag, class, and Port State Control (PSC) inspection deficiency and
detention databases and blacklisted ports.
Current geopolitical risks: Warns you if a ship has called at a port subject to a
current geopolitical threat e.g. Ebola risk countries.
Ship movement history: Screens the ship’s historic movements using the last 12
months of ship movement data from AIS and port agency networks.
Because AIS is not enough
PurpleTRAC does not rely solely on AIS data. We
blend both Inmarsat and AIS tracking data into a
single, seamless vessel movement track. By doing this,
PurpleTRAC gives you a complete picture of the ship’s
movements, even when its AIS device is switched off.
