About the company

PortXchange Products develops and commercializes SaaS applications to optimizing vessel visits to ports. We combine different data sources from different parties in a port and create a single point of truth, triggering warnings to parties enabling them to act proactively to changes in the planning of others. In real-time, all the time, and based on trusted data. This allows shipping lines, terminals, and ports to optimize operations, save fuel and emissions, which becomes increasingly important for the shipping industry of the near future.

Our vision is to successfully disrupt the current port call process and staggering inefficiency in vessels approaching and moving through ports by enabling just-in-time arrivals, and become the worldwide leader in sustainable port call optimization. Our clients/partners include industry leaders from all different trades, such as Shell, Maersk Group, MSC, Inchcape, Stolt, and we are active in the ports in the UK, US, Netherlands, Spain and scaling globally.
