A shipowner's guide to creating your company profile

Ready? Let’s get started. First of all, log into martide.com using your email address and password. You will be automatically directed to your Dashboard.  It looks like this:

First add your company's information

To create your profile, you'll need to add your shipping company’s information. Click on your profile picture in the top right hand corner - don’t worry you can change this to something more representative of you or your maritime organization shortly. You’ll see a drop down menu: click Settings.

The next thing you’ll see is lots of little icons. Click on the box with the picture of the ship and the title Company Profile.

This will take you into your Company Profile section. The page is fairly long and you’ll need to keep scrolling down it to add more information but at first you will see this:

This is where you can start building your profile by:

  • Uploading your shipping company logo or indeed any other picture you choose
  • Adding your company’s name and website address (URL).
  • Adding a description of your company - your bio or blurb. This can be as short and sweet or as long and descriptive as you like.

Scroll down the page and you will see some plus signs. If you click on any of these they will expand into sections in which you can continue entering your information.

Add your address and the address type (primary, billing, tax, work, home etc). You can add as many addresses as you need. Just click on another plus sign to open up another address section.

Once you’re done adding addresses, it’s time to enter any relevant documents you hold and upload copies of them into the system. This ensures that all of your company info is conveniently stored all in one place.

Important note: it goes without saying that Martide do not share any of your data or documents and we use secure cloud-based storage by Google.

Uploading a document

To enter the document type and upload a copy of it, click the plus sign next to Add Document.

When you’ve clicked the plus sign you will see a page that looks something like this:

Here you can:

  • Choose the country the document was issued in from the drop down menu.
  • Choose the document type from the drop down menu.
  • Enter the document number.
  • Enter the document’s start and end dates.
  • Upload a digital version of the document from your computer by clicking on Upload File.
  • Add more documents by clicking the plus sign next to Add Attachment.

Once you’ve added all of your seafaring documents and certifications you can carry on adding your shipping company’s phone numbers and bank/billing details by continuing to scroll down the page. Once again, you can add as many numbers and billing details as you need to.

Last but not least you can add your shipping details, including your contact’s name and address. When you’re done, click the blue Save button.
