Keynote| The Future of the Industry Is Making the Business Case for Collaboration
Ocean Network Express Holdings

Shipping is a mammoth and one that operates with silos, it sustains world trade, but is not sustainable. It is said to be a reactionary and slow moving industry? But looking at the changes sweeping through the industry, does this still hold true? If we have innovation, how can we achieve collaboration and how could this change shipping?
This operator is investing in the future in a very real way. The incubator was launched not even a half of year ago. What is the uptake so far and what kind of initiatives have been put forward? How was the business case made and what are the resources behind the project? Was it modelled based on a similar project from another industry?

This panel of BCOs and carriers will address some of the key aspects of collaboration and what
