PortXchange was established in 2019 as an independent organization following an incubation at the Port of Rotterdam Authority. Portxchange provides trade-agnostic digital solutions to optimize operations and reduce ports and shipping industry emissions.

Since its implementation in Rotterdam, PortXchange has expanded to other ports such as Felixstowe, Moerdijk, Algeciras, and Houston. Today, it is trusted by industry leaders worldwide to optimize over 100,000 port calls annually.

Today, PortXchange is at the forefront of driving optimization and decarbonization efforts within the maritime sector. With a data-centric approach, we continuously innovate to catalyze positive change and promote sustainability.

As a B Corp-certified company, PortXchange is not only focused on environmental sustainability but also considers socially responsible and ethical ways of conducting business throughout our entire value chain.

PortXchange’s award-winning EmissionInsider sets the gold standard for emissions tracking and analysis, driving ports towards net-zero emissions.EmissionInsider monitors and analyses a port’s carbon footprint, pinpointing pollutant sources and hotspots.

The solution enables port users to evaluate multiple “what-if” scenarios using specific port data, assessing the potential impact of decarbonization plans on air quality before implementation.

EmissionInsider tracks, analyses and reports scope 3 emissions from trucks, rail, and vessels, providing ports with a clear pathway to zero emissions. By prioritizing data-driven decarbonization initiatives it helps ports meet their targets more rapidly and supplies critical data for taking corrective actions on existing plans. This green tech solution enhances sustainability, enabling ports to become more environmentally responsible.

Synchronizer optimizes port calls using the latest terminal updates to ensure just-in-time arrivals and real-time berth planning updates, enabling informed decisions and eliminating unnecessary idle time. Based on the latest ETA berth, PortXchange Synchronizer calculates the optimal speed to reach the pilot boarding place on time and proceed to the terminal upon arrival.

Synchronizer reduces fuel consumption, emission footprint, and operational costs by optimizing vessel speed and eliminating idle time upon arrival.
