We simplify the logistics
of global trade

We do that by providing a neutral infrastructure that connects all logistics companies to remove friction and create economic opportunity. Get to know the people and stories behind xChange

What is xChange all about?

In the 1950’s, global trade changed for good. The invention of the standardized container suddenly meant that transporting goods across the world became affordable. And with that, pathed the way for globalization and global wealth. But contrary to the container, most surrounding processes have not been standardized nor innovated—and are still frustratingly complex, manual and error-prone.

That’s why our ambition is to use technology to simplify the logistics of global trade, making the processes around the container as simple as the container itself.

We do that by providing a neutral infrastructure that connects all logistics companies to remove friction and create economic opportunity.
