Full details

Digitalisation is re-shaping the business world and is increasingly important for gaining competitive edge. Emerging technologies, together with the evolution and development of new platforms, are providing unparalleled opportunities within shipping and the related transport and supply chain infrastructure.

If Industry 4.0 is to be truly realised, then shipping must embrace a new approach to the traditional supply chain. Moving a container from A to B involves, on average, 30 different actors and 200+ interactions - delivery of goods has never been more transparent, nor more complex. So, what can digitalisation do to streamline and integrate shipping with the connected supply chain ecosystem?

Across three key sessions we will discuss how we can identify the real digital opportunity in front of us and re-define digitalisation in maritime and transport. How can we better understand the business improvements these technologies represent?

Sessions will include:


  • The Maritime Satcom Summit - Investigating the evolution of maritime mobility and connectivity


  • Planning for Cyber Resilience and Managing Risk - A fresh look at maritime cyber security, safety and risk


  • The iShipping Revolution - Transforming the supply chain in the digital era
