Panel Discussion| Digital Shipping, the Supply Chain and the Freight Forwarders – A Closer Look
StormGeo CEO, Per-Olof Schroeder, discusses the issues facing the rapidly changing shipping landscape and the use of machine learning and AI technology to transform data into actionable business insights-to make the data "talk." Examples will show how StormGeo is applying machine-learning to a vast repository of ship-specific historical performance data to isolate the impact of MetOcean phenomena on underlying ship performance.
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: How will these changes impact shippers and is this what they need? But overall trade has also been shifting, customers have become more individualised, requiring the most specialised service so far in the history of commerce. This presentation will tell the story behind this operator's innovation strategy and how aligns with what they customers need now, in a world where they are likely to need something entirely different very soon.
Half way into a year that has seen a level of stability conducive to future planning, to growth strategies and new opportunities, we ask this panel of operators: What is keeping you up at night? Where is the industry headed and what is the smartest way to get there? What are operators doing in order to increase the sustainability of the shipping industry and is it enough? Could the answer be collaboration and if so, in what form or to what extent is collaboration possible?
Last year, the consensus among BCOs was that alliances are likely to reduce choice and hence affect the quality of the service and relationships with carriers. A year later, we check in with BCOs and ask:
Digitalization is rapidly transforming the logistics and other shipping processes on a global scale. Major benefits can be seen in the areas of efficiency, security and large energy savings.
How do container shipping companies secure customers in today’s environments? They need to be competitive and offer attractive and advanced technological solutions to gain their customer’s trust in order to assure them to carefully transport and handle their valuable belongings.
With the emergence of big data and increasingly interconnected technologies, the digital revolution of “physical assets” is taking shape. Smart containers are revolutionizing the movement of goods – knowing where a container is at what time, what goods it contains, its condition, if it has been tampered with – all of this information means securing assets and increase operational efficiency!
Containers equipped with the aJour® Door 2 Door Security System are registered and tracked for optimized transport and distribution processes and to meet customer requirements. In addition, digitalized products which are custom-designed to actively prevent losses at sea are becoming increasingly important in marine insurance.
For the carriers, alliances and mergers raised questions of competition, even monopoly, scale and agility and in some cases, survival. In the conditions of such large scale consolidation, with the dust having settled more or less, this operator talk about:
With the rise of digital freight forwarders, carriers moving into to the business and the already competitive environment for traditional forwarders, we take a closer look into how the battle is shaping up.
A clear picture of one of the most important dynamics affecting trade. This session will look at segment based supply-demand, including a look at why there is no tonnage on order for 4,000-10,000 TEU – is there an opportunity here? Finishing with a well-documented forecast for the upcoming 18-24 months
Balancing the markets:
The container and the industry that built up around it over the past half-century has underpinned the greatest expansion of trade and global economic development in history. In this joint TT Club/McKinsey research to celebrate TT Club’s 50th anniversary, we explore the key sources of value creation for container lines, terminal operators, and freight forwarders over the coming 25 years, and posit four different futures for the industry: digital reinvention, digital disruption, third wave of globalization, and “peak container” and consolidation.
