Port Technology is able to offer, for a limited amount of time, all its papers from the most popular and latest edition of its journal ‘Linking the Supply Chain’ as free to access until July 25, 2018.
Technological advancements are multiplying human development by factors never before imagined, which means it is imperative that supply chain data is digitized to ensure a smart ecosystem that fosters an end-to-end flow of information for the port of the future.
Many experts believe that smart ports will be central to ensuring that the logistics industry’s key players are all involved in moving freight from point A to B, from one side of the globe to the other.
One of the leading insights from the journal is a technical paper by World Economic Forum expert Wolfgang Lehmacher, who has provided PTI’s audience with an idea of how a chain of interacting actors will link logistics in ‘Ports for Tomorrow: Smart Links in Intelligent Supply Chains’.
Lehmacher's knowledge has helped build the intellectual groundwork for the Smart Ports & Supply Chain Technologies conference.
Other edition 78 technical papers which mirror the theme of the conference include ‘DP World: Linking the Supply Chain’ by Rashid Abdullah, CEO, Europe and Russia, DP World (pictured above); ‘Digital Transformation: Are Start-Ups the New Leaders?’ Mare Straetmans, PortXL; and ‘Blockchain for Maritime: Securing the Cyber Environment’ by Darko Djuric, CargoX.
