Portplus Projects

Over recent years, Port+ has conducted a number of projects with partners in the port community. These have included the project management of the Maritime Sustainability Platform (MaSP) which consisted of a workgroup of various experts investigating a data platform to contain all relevant environmental data on seagoing vessels. Port+ has also undertaken studies with companies on how to benefit from the considerable wealth of data it has built up on vessel movements, company activities and electronic data interchange between various players in the port communities of Antwerp, Zeeland and Zeebrugge.
