Maritime due diligence firm RightShip has announced a new tie-up for its recently launched Maritime Emissions Portal (MEP) with port data-sharing platform NxtPort International, to provide port communities around the world with access to the system.
NxtPort, which originated at the Port of Antwerp, is a marketplace for port communities used by some 3,000 public and private entities. The platform can be used by ports, terminals, ship owners and managers to access and combine data sources across supply chains and use that data to power a range of digital tools.
RightShip’s MEP is the first in a new series of products from the company designed to support ports and terminals, helping them to better understand and manage ship-based emissions within set zones around their local geography.
“Nxtport International brings wonderful experience and understanding of the port business, curating products with high impact potential for ports and terminals,” said Gurpreet Singh, CCO for RightShip.
“We are pleased to see them place their trust in MEP for emissions reduction, by highlighting this product to their customers. We’re confident that we’ll support many new customers to embark on a journey to zero harm in the maritime industry.”
