Our ideas and products are noticed and adopted by industry leaders. This is the direct result of being a startup with the backing of a leading brand. We value our culture of ownership, craftsmanship and self-organizing teams that consist of highly skilled team players.

We use modern architecture like (micro-)services and event sourcing where appropriate. We run fully in the cloud using AWS, Github, CircleCI, Kafka, PostgreSQL and Kubernetes. Every commit goes to production fully automated through a continuous delivery pipeline. We think this set-up is serving us well now, but we are not afraid to improve whenever we can. Reliability is important to us so we create solutions that can run in production 24/7.

About the company

PortXchange Products develops and commercializes SaaS applications to optimize vessel visits to ports. Through our industry data standards and algorithms, 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 planning of others. In real time, all the time and based on trusted data. This allows shipping lines, terminals and port communities 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 approaches 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 ports in the UK, US, Netherlands and Spain and scaling globally.
