Breakfast Briefing: Blueprint for the future - how to build a scalable digital framework for the global shipping industry

There is an ongoing buzz in shipping around digitalisation of the work environment. A wide array of data sensitive communication channels and supporting tools is available to key stakeholders in the business, enabling them to benefit from enhanced efficiency and security.

But have you ever heard of a social platform for the international shipping crowd? Is the willingness to invest money enough to ultimately build an overarching global digital framework, an all-in-one approach that tackles all issues and feeds all needs? And what does it actually take to design and develop a scalable online shipping platform from scratch?
Join us for our breakfast briefing for more on these (and other) insights:

  • What are the key challenges, skills and setbacks while developing a new, digital framework for the global shipping community – to connect, transact and interact the easy way, online or on the go?
  • How can we bring together the shipping crowd and secure, state-of-the-art tools – to provide greater focus, more efficiency and a richer social experience?
  • What are the next steps, future plans and options – for impressive features, partnering opportunities and business development?
  • Christopher Gonzalez - Startup Director and Product Owner, Sea Ventures

Singapore in Digital or Digital in Singapore?
  • Moderator Gijsbert de Jong - Marine Marketing & Sales Director - Marine & Offshore Division, Bureau Veritas
  • Panellist Chakib Abi-Saab - Group Chief Technology Officer, OSM Maritime Group
  • Panellist Michael Pomerleau - Partner and Chief Investing Officer, Rainmaking Transport

We ask the imperative questions concerning the digital age within the Singaporean Hub. Digital transformation is no longer a trend of the future but a reality of the present. How is the industry integrating tools, technology and processes to facilitate digital transformation, measuring rate of success against rate of digital developments and laying the foundations for long term continued growth. 

  • Balancing technology integration with maintaining the bottom line
  • Separating the digital disruptors to the digital enablers
  • Can we treat legislation separately from innovation?
  • Monetising assets in the industry – moving from IoT to Economy of Things

  • Panellist Jan Otto Kat - Director – Market sector Containerships, ABS
  • Panellist Jagmeet Makkar - Co-Founder & Director, SkillsPlus

To wrap up, we will look at some of the deeper and more pressing challenges facing the industry today and ask: What has digital transformation meant for the industry to meet new sustainability pressures? What initiatives are shipowners, BCOs, ports and terminals and authorities are taking to meet the 2020 sulphur cap to improve conditions for scrapping, given the current capacity and the apparent sustained increase in orders? Who will bear the costs of compliance and suitability efforts? How will costs be transferred or reflected in relation to freight rates?

Keynote | CMA’s 40th Anniversary milestone and the IMO Low Sulfur 2020
  • Mathieu Girardin - Vice President Asia, CMA-CGM

In the debate over the future of digital shipping, one important consideration jumps out, irrespective of the side, the role or the engagement in either the debate or in digitisation – infrastructure.  So, we will hear from this operator about the foundations, how it should be built and role of the carrier in the infrastructure of shipping in the digital age.

  • Panellist Tan Wei - Chief - IT Strategy & Management Practise, National University of Singapore

With the shipping industry susceptible to attacks that come from outside of the market, what are the parameters to measure the extent to which your fleet may be vulnerable? What risk management strategy approach is best to protect but also practically implement, in the short term? What are the best ways to limit human risk and mitigate cyber influences from both outside and inside the organisation?

With so many links in the supply chain, so many solutions for optimisation already on the market and an equal amount emerging, as well as carriers reconsidering the case for end to end supply chain integration, we look at the future, but most importantly, the past and ask: Since attempts at integration have been made and failed in the past, what are the arguments for it no? What has changed?

How the chicken & egg is unlocked - LNG to suit Marpol regulations
  • Stephane Maillard - Managing Director, GTT South East Asia

The order of CMA CGM for 9x 22k TEU to be LNG fueled is a game changer in the industry, alongside with the order of MOL for the LNG bunkership to be chartered by TOTAL to serve the ULCV of CMA CGM. GTT confirm its expertise in LNG by providing its Membrane Tank solution for both projects. Two reasons why these projects are disruptive: firstly the bunker tank onboard the containerships is sized to fit the full EU-ASIA roundtrip with only one bunkering in Europe, and secondly, the LNG supplier will charter a bunkership dedicated to the client.

This right industrial partnership breaks the ground of the aged dilemma of the egg and chicken in the LNG as fuel matter.

Future Fuels - likely impact on cost and operational considerations
  • Jan Otto Kat - Director – Market sector Containerships, ABS

LNG as a fuel for ships is one of the options to comply with the 2020 global sulfur cap regulations. Pros and cons will be considered in relation to other compliance solutions, including switching to low sulfur fuel or fitting a scrubber with the ability to burn HFO. Discussion will focus on life cycle costs, and some key technical and operational aspects.
