Shipradar - ship numbers
Ships can be clearly identified by the ship number. The so-called IMO number (International Maritime Organization) is composed of the abbreviation “IMO” and a seven-digit number, so for example IMO-1234567. The marking is already given during the construction phase. It applies to the entire life of the ship, even if a ship is renamed once. The number must be attached to the hull and in the engine room.
