Navigating Transshipment Port Data

Modified on Wed, 17 May 2023 at 05:38 AM

Within the sailing_info_tracking object of our API response, you will find different legs of the vessel journey ("leg" = connecting stops, eg. from port A to B, B to C). 

In this object, under sailing_info, you will find PODs listed here. 

  • If there are more than 1 PODs listed in this section, that means there are transshipment ports present in the vessel journey.
  • If there is only 1 POD listed, there are no transshipment ports present
  • Note that the last POD in the series is the final port of departure

How you can identify a transshipment port in our API response: 

Please find below a short Python Snippet on how you can retrieve the Transhipment port details from our API Response:

# Get the sailing_info_tracking list from our API Response
sailing_info_tracking = PortcastAPIResponse.sailing_info_tracking

# is_transshipment_present = if the length of sailing_info_tracking object from our API response is more than 1

is_transshipment_present = (True if len(sailing_info_tracking)>1 else False)

# list_of_transshipment_ports = pod key for each object in our sailing_info_tracking list.

list_of_transshipment_ports = []
for sailing_info_obj in sailing_info_tracking[:-1]:
          ts_name = sailing_info_obj.sailing_info['pod']
