Help your staff, partners, and customers to manage vessel operations remotely in these challenging times. World of Ports and PortXchange temporarily provide free-of-charge log-ins to support the shipping industry during this crisis.
The COVID-19 crisis is creating challenging times for the shipping industry when scheduling port calls remotely. We recognize that getting the right information, communicating updates to many different stakeholders and colleagues may become more challenging when your teams are working remotely.
At PortXchange and Inchcape World of Ports, we want to play our part in getting through this crisis. Therefore we have set up a special initiative: during the COVID-19 crisis agencies and terminals will get free-of-charge access to part of the PortXchange software to schedule port calls and share them directly with their port community, and now based on the master data supplied by Inchcape World of Ports to make this offer available in almost 4.500 ports worldwide.
In the first phase this solution is in particular meant for terminals and agencies. By the end of April, we will also welcome carriers, ports, and (nautical) services. We offer this solution free of charge until at least the 1st of August 2020.
