Antwerp, Belgium – April 2, 2020 – Avantida by E2open (Avantida) has taken the next step to transform the container logistics industry. Just two months after its move into container tendering, Avantida launched matchX – an application that allows transporters to exchange empty equipment amongst companies.
The ‘matchX’ application is designed to fundamentally address driver shortage, port congestion and subsequently carbon emission factors. It enables transporters to exchange containers with each other with built-in consent from the container owners.
Rico van Leuken, Avantida’s general manager, said, “matchX is transforming the way empty equipment is re-used. I am excited to see the steep adoption rate in all our continents, which evidences the need for this innovation. We take pride adding yet another great asset that makes our planet greener. This step completes a key milestone of our strategy towards becoming the Uber® for containers. Moving forward, we will inject machine learning technology to holistically address the fundamental challenges along the container lifecycle for all parties involved.”
matchX is seamlessly integrated into Avantida’s reUse application. While reUse requires one single transporting company to identify and request a street turn, matchX now offers more. By enabling transporting companies to find each other, one transporter’s import is combined with another transporter’s export to execute a street turn request – fully digitally in one harmonized workflow.
All 7,800 transporters across 23 countries can use the new application using their usual login and new transporters can sign-up for free under platform.avantida.com.
With more innovations in the pipeline, and with more than 10 new countries across four continents ready to start using the platform in the months ahead, Avantida will continue to be the leader in its addressed industry.
