Marketing

Every day, millions of containers are transported – and every third container is empty! We will solve that problem.

xChange is the world’s first online B2B marketplace to share excess containers with other companies. This allows us to drastically reduce empty runs, increase asset utilization and save thousands of tons of CO2 per year. Our ambition is to become the leading platform for container operations globally – and already today our global customers range from small local container traders to large container liners. As a well-funded and growing startup, we are permanently on the look-out for great minds to join our team and solve the next big challenge of the logistics industry.
