Unlocking the power of modern information technology for more efficient natural gas trading and transport.

Route4Gas, based in Amsterdam, started more than 4 years ago with the idea to optimise gas flows in Europe. Since then a lot of work has been done, many new ideas came up, were discussed, adapted or declined.

Now, Route4Gas is more than just a tool for transport optimisation. Alexey Mileev, founder and CEO of the company, developed with his team a unique software solution that fits the needs of whole European gas markets, the needs of traders and portfolio managers and transportation departments. The system is about anonymity and data solutions, increasing the liquidity of markets and empowering the needed digitalization trend in the energy industry.

After three years of extensive development the company has reached the most important milestone in their history on the 1st September 2020 with the go-live of the system.
Route4Gas is growing rapidly: More than 17 people from seven countries, a truly international team, are united and driven by the idea of delivering a better solution to the gas markets.
