Driving Efficiency and Sustainability in Global Ports

At NxtPort International, we are committed to pioneering green energy initiatives and ensuring secure data management within global supply chains. Our recent endeavors, highlighted during the Belgian Prime Minister’s visit to Houston, underscore our dedication to revolutionizing maritime logistics and fostering environmental sustainability. Let’s delve into the significant developments and collaborations that are shaping the future of port management and sustainability efforts worldwide.

Transatlantic collaboration for green energy

During the visit in 2023, Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo witnessed the signing of a groundbreaking Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in Houston. This MOU, forged between three Belgian entities and three Houston-based partners, signifies a monumental step towards transatlantic cooperation in green energy initiatives. With a focus on renewable and low-carbon molecules, green shipping corridors, and knowledge exchange, this partnership between two major petrochemical clusters, Houston and Antwerp, promises shared prosperity through economic impact and environmental sustainability.

Revolutionizing maritime data management with Intertrust

In parallel, our collaboration with US-based Intertrust is reshaping maritime data and IoT device management. Originating from the Port of Antwerp Bruges, this partnership prioritizes cybersecure solutions for multi-party data sharing in supply chains and edge-to-device management. Leveraging Intertrust’s advanced technology in trusted distributed computing and NxtPort’s API-first data exchange solution, this collaboration ensures secure, real-time data sharing crucial for operational efficiency in maritime logistics.

Integration of Digital Rights Management (DRM)

The integration of Digital Rights Management (DRM) by Intertrust goes beyond conventional data protection. It enables the authentication of molecules throughout the supply chain, ensuring the integrity and traceability of green energy resources. This technological leap aligns perfectly with the goals outlined in the MOU signed in Houston, further solidifying Belgium’s commitment to global sustainability efforts.
