To make it easier for shipowners and ship managers to keep track of their vessels, we’ve created the Vessel Groups feature. This works as a filtering system and enables you to group together certain vessels by any criteria you like. Here’s how to use the feature. We also display your vessels grouped by their Vessel Group on the Messaging page in your inbox.

How to use the Vessel Groups feature

Log into your Martide account and click on your profile picture in the right hand corner > Settings > Vessel Groups

That will take you to a page that looks something like this:

On this page you can:

  • Search for existing Vessel Groups.
  • Create a new Vessel Group.
  • Edit an existing Vessel Group.
  • Delete an Existing Vessel Group.

You can see from our example above that we currently have two Vessel Groups. One of these is a group of our container ships. The other is all the vessels under a certain ship management company.

You can sort your groups into whatever makes sense for you.

How to add a new Vessel Group

Click on the blue New button on the top left of the page:

That will take you to this page:

Here you can:

  • Name your Vessel Group.
  • Add your vessels to the group. When you click on the Vessels Box a drop down list will appear with the names of all your vessels.
  • Click Save when you’re done.

How to edit or delete an existing Vessel Group

To edit a Vessel Group, on the main Vessel Group page go to the group and click the Edit / document and pen icon:

That will take you back to that group’s page where you can change the name of the group and add or remove vessels.

To delete a Vessel Group, click the Delete / trash can icon. Make sure you definitely want to remove the group as you won’t get a warning!
