Welcome to the Marine Exchange Of Puget Sound
As a membership-based, nonprofit organization founded in 1980, we strive to strengthen the maritime transportation community while promoting safe, secure, efficient and environmentally responsible operations. Using 24/7 vessel tracking technology we provide real-time operational data and comprehensive communications services to our members, while also lifting administrative burdens through various organizational support services.
Our membership consists of Puget Sound-based steamship agents & operators, ship chandlers, port authorities, tugboat operators, and state & federal agencies, alongside several maritime industry support businesses. We are continuously working to improve and grow our operations so we can better serve the essential maritime community.
Our vessel monitoring service remains the backbone of our organization monitoring over 7,000 movements a year through 64 different data fields, but we also provide day-to-day support services ranging from after-hours phone answering to full-scale financial management.
For maritime industry organizations without administrative staff, or those needing more help, the Exchange provides services including invoicing, accounting, meeting coordination, membership list maintenance and more.
Maintaining seven AIS data towers, we collect data on 64 different fields every minute. We use this information to track vessels of all types through arrivals, departures, anchor-to-birth shifts, port-to-port movement, and more.
