Big business, big data, big ideas to stay ahead of the game in liner shipping
What keeps you up at night? Scale, agility, disruption? Knowledge is power! Get up to date at the annual meeting of the liner shipping industry.
What to expect?
The business operations check-in
One year from some of the biggest, most significant changes in liner shipping, we ask both operators and BCOs about the DNA of alliances and M&As, but mostly about integration and the impact they had on business operations and the level of service
The shippers’ perspective
Moving away from a traditional approach, 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
The ROI of digital innovation
Last year we heard “go digital, or go home!”. This year operators who have put a lot of money behind digital innovation will discuss tangible results, financial performance and client service improvement. This is not about the business case, but the ROI!
Sustainability & LNG propulsion
What is the economy of LNG propulsion for ocean carriers? What infrastructure is already available, and what are the plans for developing it? Could this be a viable solution for a boost in industry's sustainability or will bunkering vs trade routes disqualify it?
Freight forwarders & supply chain management
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? How is the future shipping architecture shaping up and who is likely to lose out?
Market forecasts, 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
