What we do

Building the next-gen predictive supply chain technology.

We make supply chains dynamic by uncovering valuable visibility, capacity and pricing insights using a variety of logistics, economic and satellite data. Portcast improves your supply chain profitability by accurately predicting container arrival times and forecasting cargo demand.

We use proprietary machine learning algorithms and real-time external market data (such as economic indices, marine weather, satellite-based data, etc) to predict how much cargo will be shipped, when it will arrive and deliver actionable insights.

Why we do

We want to transform international supply chains to be more resilient by helping logistics companies realise the full potential of their data. We cater to both shipping lines and cargo airlines. This covers 90% of the world trade volume that travels via ocean and 35% of world trade value that travels via air.

Making logistics more efficient and data-driven with AI.
Our founders Nidhi Gupta and Dr. Lingxiao Xia met at Entrepreneur First in Singapore and realised their backgrounds collided at the intersection of how AI can enable logistics to be more efficient and data-driven.

That started their journey of working with leading global logistics companies to build a SaaS platform that can redefine productivity standards, improve total cost of operations and enable decarbonisation.

Portcast has been focused on building the next-gen logistics operating system to predict how cargo moves across the world and enable data-driven decisions.

How we do

Our executive team and investors:
Coming from renowned technology and logistics companies such as DHL, Cisco, Antler, Adobe or with deep tech research and PhDs from institutes like EDHEC, CUHK, we are a team of data scientists, software engineers and logistics domain experts. Backed by some of the major investors in the tech industry, we believe that the logistics industry is at the inflection point of large scale digitisation.

With supply chains experiencing multiple external disruptions, supply chain resilience becomes a top priority for many companies.
