NxtPort was created in 2016 when several leading maritime and logistic companies and industry associations joined forces to address key challenges faced by the Port of Antwerp players. This resulted in NxtPort offering a state-of-the-art and innovative ‘smart data sharing’ platform that contributes to digitising logistics, maritime and industrial processes.

To cover the international expansion of chemical and petrochemical hubs around the globe, NxtPort International bv has been founded in 2021.

After expanding on the European continent with the e-CLIC community (European Chemical Association) and the start of the Network of Trusted Networks for IPCSA, connecting several ports globally, we set up a first intercontinental office in the USA in 2021.

In the summer of 2021, we also went live in Asia, enabling companies and ports to share data safely and securely via just one connection to the NxtPort platform to feed their different applications. We stimulate innovative 3rd party solutions while connecting all stakeholders and creating better interoperability of existing platforms.
