PortXchange Launches North American Expansion.


ROTTERDAM / 04.04.2024:

We are thrilled to share the exciting news of our expansion into North America. It’s a significant milestone for us, and we’re proud to announce Matt Swenson‘s appointment as our new Account Executive for North America. With his wealth of experience and genuine passion for the maritime industry, Matt is the perfect fit to lead our efforts in amplifying PortXchange’s presence across the United States.

Matt’s background speaks volumes about his dedication to the maritime sector.

With five years of hands-on experience in data, AIS technology, and digital solutions, he’s well-equipped to navigate our industry’s challenges and opportunities. His previous roles at Marine Traffic and Lloyd’s List Intelligence honed his skills in collaborating closely with ports, contributing to the development of tailored solutions that enhance visibility, vessel monitoring, and operational efficiency.

In his new role, Matt’s mission is clear: to put vital decarbonization tools into the hands of maritime stakeholders throughout North America. With our suite of tools at his disposal, Matt will guide the North American market towards the advantages of reducing carbon footprints through streamlined emissions data collection and facilitating just-in-time arrivals. Additionally, he’ll provide ports with hands-on guidance and support, ensuring the seamless integration of PortXchange solutions into their existing operations.

Pivotal moment for the maritime industry.

The call for digitalization, data-driven decision-making, and collaboration between ports and shipping lines has never been more urgent. As the industry faces increasing pressure to provide transparent reporting on emissions, including Scope 1 and soon Scope 3 emissions, leveraging AI algorithms and data is crucial for effective emission reduction strategies.

“We are thrilled to have Matt Swenson on board. His knowledge and passion for the marine environment, especially around North America, will stand him in good stead. The maritime industry stands at a pivotal juncture where the call for digitalization, data-driven strategies, and collaborative initiatives between ports and shipping lines have never been more urgent. In this critical moment, US ports have already demonstrated the aspiration to be frontrunners in this transition, not because of emerging legislation, but because of customer service and strategic necessity. With Matt on the ground, and our already strong track-record in the US, we are excited about what we can accomplish together with the US based maritime ecosystem. Sjoerd de Jager, CEO of PortXchange

We are confident that we can drive positive change and lead the industry towards a greener and more sustainable future. With Matt leading the charge in North America and the support of our team and suite of innovative tools, we are ready to make a difference.
