…enabling members to buy & sell containers online without commission. Find containers from certified partners and advertise your stock, commission-free, to 300+ companies on the neutral online marketplace Container xChange.

Hamburg, Germany – June 4, 2020 – Today, Container xChange, the online platform for container logistics, announced the launch of their trading marketplace. This is the first solution in the market that allows customers to buy & sell containers online without a commission from certified partners. “Especially now in times of COVID-19 with people working remotely putting a strain on personal relationships and live meetings, transparency on the global container trading market offers a great opportunity to compensate potential losses and grow businesses in difficult times”, says Dr. Johannes Schlingmeier, founder and CEO of Container xChange.

The key is that Container xChange is not taking a position in trading but providing the platform for its members to trade containers in a global, trusted environment. Instead of manually sending out emails with stock lists and promoting offers on social media, members can now simply use the neutral online platform to reach 300+ partners and gain full market transparency within seconds. “You can even activate our market scanner to get notified about new offers that fit your needs”, adds Jakob Hafner, the responsible product manager at Container xChange.

In addition to their one-way marketplace, Container xChange has now developed a second option for container owners to avoid empty container moves. Buying & selling containers used to be a risky business, but now with the neutral marketplace payments for transactions can be protected. The experienced service team at Container xChange is always there to personally assist. “The unique combination of trading and repositioning containers in one platform opens up business opportunities that did not exist before”, adds Jakob Hafner, “Our members can now quickly find containers in low-price locations and move them to higher-price locations everywhere in the world”. More than 10,000 containers are already available on the neutral online marketplace – ready for buyers and sellers.

  • Buy containers from certified partners within seconds instead of sending out mass emails and waiting days for a reply (if you have partners in that specific region at all).

  • Gain 100% transparency on who you buy from or sell to without added commission.
  • Get notified for containers that match your needs, was there ever an easier way of doing business?
  • Stop following up on invoices, xChange automates invoicing & payment handling for you
