2018 event highlights
Vital answers to key questions
Influential speakers and industry leaders walked delegates through a content packed with carrier case studies, shipper panel discussions, broader keynotes & outsider's view sessions.
Focus on innovation and digital disruption
In 2018 we were co-located with Shipping2030 where we dug deep into everything digital: IoT, data analytics, blockchain, smart operations, cyber risks and much more.
Networking: 2 conferences under 1 roof!
Delegates made new connections and expanded their network over the 2 days in Singapore, where over 250 decision makers from all sectors in maritime gathered under one roof.
Key Themes at GLS Asia 2018
Looking at the most efficient strategies for liner shipping, we ask both operators and BCOs about the DNA of alliances and M&As, integration and the impact they had on business operations and the level of service.
Checking in: Applications and Return of Digital Innovation
Operators who have put a lot of money behind digital innovation will discuss tangible results, financial performance and client service improvement. We will look at some of the most exciting tech available for liner shipping.
The Regional Outlook
We close in on the Asian market and opportunities for collaboration and the wider global trade. We will explore in depth the challenges of regional development and what’s up on the horizon.
We bring shippers centre stage to talk about their business, the impact of technology, about their customers and changing markets, to shine a light on their needs now and how they are likely to change in the medium and long term.
(Digital) Supply Chain Management
The digital supply chain: how has the market changed with the emergence of digital freight forwarders, the increase in complexity of services offered by traditional forwarders, and the interjection of carriers?
Supply & Demand, Finance & Investments
Analysts and experts will look at overall as well as segment-level supply and demand dynamics, and investments and finance options to determine what the economic climate will look like for the upcoming 2 years, to help you make better business decisions.

Global Liner Shipping Asia has come a long way in the years I have attended. Today, it is recognised by both carriers and shippers as an important event in the shipping conference calendar in the region, and we all benefit enormously from the exchange of ideas and lively discussions. I look forward to participating again next year!

I would like to thank Shipping 2030 Asia /Global Liner Shipping Asia organizers, it was a wonderful experience to identify upcoming technology & innovation in Global Shipping Liner from the Industry Leader. Learnt a lot about the shipping Liner industry in detail and insight about ocean shipping market trend.
Head of Logistics & Transportation - Asia
The Conference was most useful in combining the more expected Liner Shipping views with the digital future we all see coming - perhaps faster than even 2030. The Q and A sessions were certainly more interesting than normal, as the panels and audience were fully engaged in the problems we are all facing together.
The Shipping 2030 & Global Liner Shipping Conference was both informative and relevant to what is going on in the present shipping arena. It was also good in terms of providing a platform for the key players to voice their views and exchange ideas for the future of shipping. Really appreciated the well laid out programmes for both the streams. The Digitalization topics were quite intriguing, especially how digitalizing is changing the shipping format and how we have to change our mindsets to remain relevant going forward
