Welcome to the Marine Exchange Of Puget Sound

As a member-supported maritime industry association, we are devoted to making the maritime transportation system safer and stronger. We use 24/7 vessel tracking technology and provide real-time 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 Services

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.

Vessel Tracking

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.
