NxtPort was established in 2016 when multiple prominent maritime and logistics companies, along with industry associations, collaborated in the Port of Antwerp, Belgium, to tackle significant challenges encountered by port stakeholders. This collaboration led to the creation of NxtPort, which provides a cutting-edge and innovative ‘smart data sharing’ platform. This platform plays a pivotal role in digitizing logistics, maritime, and industrial processes.

In 2021, we established NxtPort International BV in Europe to support the global expansion of chemical and petrochemical hubs. Building on our successful expansion within the European continent through partnerships like the e-CLIC community (European Chemical Association) and the initiation of the Network of Trusted Networks for IPCSA, which connects various ports worldwide, we inaugurated our first intercontinental office in the USA in 2021.

In 2021, we inaugurated a commercial office in Singapore. This move enables companies and ports in Asia to securely share data through a single connection to the NxtPort platform, facilitating the integration of various applications. Our aim is to foster innovative 3rd-party logistics software solutions, enhance connectivity among all stakeholders, and improve the interoperability of existing platforms starting with the liqiuidbulk.

Nxtport stands at the forefront of data-sharing opportunities within complex ecosystems.

In intricate port and logistics ecosystems, effective communication among stakeholders is pivotal. It’s not only essential for ports to maintain their competitive position, but also for stakeholders to enhance operational efficiency. The topic of end-to-end (E2E) data sharing remains prominent in logistics, particularly due to its significance in the push to decarbonize industries. Recognizing this need, Nxtport was established to offer a reliable data-sharing platform. This startup has enhanced the transparency of data, enabling stakeholders to transform the global supply chain into a more sustainable, scalable, efficient, safe, and profitable system.

At the core of port communication and data exchange is Nxtport International. With a special emphasis on chemical and petrochemical industries, Nxtport fosters the exchange of data between both private enterprises and public authorities.
