Bulkchain, the suite for digital Breakbulk solutions



The NxtPort Breakbulk Community Project

Bulkchain Proof of Concept is live!

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!

Integrated or simple user interface

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.

Why should you join?

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.

What do you get in return?

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 the community, for the community


NxtPort and Port+, invited the Breakbulk community for two co-envisions in June 2018. During these sessions the [renewal of the] commitment to support the Bulkchain project has been given by +30 companies and Customs.

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`


Agile development

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.

NxtPort golden principles by design

Bulkchain will be fully supported by the NxtPort platform. This means:

  • By the community, for the community
  • Data providers remain owner of their data and share them only with companies they trust
  • Data is stored, handled and accessed 100% secured & compliant with all security & privacy standards



NxtPort engineers the data hub to enable datasharing amongst the stakeholders. Port+, our co-creation partner, is developing a low-entry application, allowing a quick go-to-market. Do you want to join them and develop your application on top of our data layer? Let us know!
