Operator Keynote| The Business of (Digital) Shipping
more

Most of what we have heard over the past two years, has focused on the dramatic changes in the liner industry, with alliances, consolidation and digitisation leading everyone to wonder: who are the winners and who are the losers in this business and can an innovation mindset give operators and most of all, newcomers and edge? Is there such thing as traditional vs digital shipping and what are the cornerstones of success in the business of shipping?

  • Approaching a marketing strategy – how is this conducted correctly?
  • What are the parameters to measure social media success?

  • If the question comes too soon, when can we expect results?
  • Most importantly, what are the crucial aspects of change management that operators must consider?
