PortXchange provides innovative digital solutions to support shipping companies and port communities worldwide to become more efficient and reduce carbon footprint. It is founded under the belief that collaboration, digitization, and sustainability will shape the future of the shipping industry.
PortXchange originates from Pronto – collaborative vessel and terminal planning platform – designed by Port of Rotterdam. Pronto has been used in Rotterdam since 2018, and various pilots have been conducted, with fantastic results. All deep-sea container terminals in Rotterdam are now connected to the platform, and 75% of deep-sea carriers in Rotterdam use Pronto.
After tremendous success in Rotterdam, it was decided to make the platform available to ports across the world. PortXchange, as an independent company, was established in 2019. Being neutral contributes to the aspiration of PortXchange to have a positive global impact. PortXchange encourages ports and shipping companies to collaborate to achieve just-in-time sailing and reduce CO2 and NOx emissions.
Together with strategic partners Shell and Maersk, PortXchange successfully conducted several pilots outside Rotterdam. As of 2020, PortXchange is used by more than 50 parties to support over 100 000 port calls.
