Good news from the Bulkchain team: the solution that we have been working on during the past few months is ready for it's first test customers. We welcome all parties that want to pioneer with us to establish the first breakbulk port of the future!
The Bulkchain project is built as an "API-first" solution. This means, even during PoC, any company can integrate it with its own application. However, thanks to Port+, you can also start by using a straightforward user interface.
We are launching Bulkchain (TDO & TDC) commercially in May during the Antwerp XL exhibition. Prior to this event, you can already experience how the new data sharing hub will improve the breakbulk experience of the future. This will help us to validated and improve the development of the next modules.
Besides embracing innovation within your organisation, all PoC members will shape the final solution to better fit their company needs, are included in all our communication (press release, Antwerp XL & Breakbulk Europe, ...) as pioneers in the industry, can play a role in video reference cases.

By following the Agile project approach, a core team existing of NxtPort and members from these companies will start with the functional analysis of the application`
Bulkchain will follow an "agile project approach". This means that instead of hiding behind computer screens for 2 years and develop what we think would fit the needs, we actively build-up the application with the community.
With monthly "sprints" and feedback loops, we strive to bring small parts of the solution bit by bit, focussing on added value for active stakeholders, stable (yet quick) deliverables and proactive (re)design.
