Last week's Smart Ports and Supply Chain Technologies conference (#SPSC18) preview looked at 'Collaboration and Standardization' and gave a taste of what our speakers and panellists would be discussing in the fourth session.
Today, we're revealing what can be expected from the fifth session, 'Blockchain and Data Sharing: Capitalising on the Blockchain Opportunity.'
Three top executives will give their insight on one of the industry's hottest topics: blockchain.
Foster, Straetmans and Jakomin will each give presentations on blockchain's role in the supply chain and how it's affecting the maritime sector.
They'll also focus on how the global supply chain can bolster its security, resilience and strengthen information sharing in the value chain through examples of successful blockchain integration.
The views belonging to CargoX and Foster were recently featured in Port Technology's #SPSC18 Conference e-Book #2 Blockchain
To learn more about blockchain and prepare yourself for the conversation around the impact of digital transformation, take a look at the technical paper written by #SPSC18 speaker and Managing Director of Port XL, Mare Sraetmans.
In 'Digital Transformation: Are Start-ups the New Leaders?' he says that the maritime and logistics sectors are changing rapidly and that it's creating opportunities for new, enterprising start-ups.
Adapting to blockchain and the other new technologies is critically important to the companies throughout the supply chain.
A driving force is adapting to consumers' needs and that means technologies such as blockchain, AI and the cloud are becoming more integral to the world's ports and terminals.
In a recent interview, Francisco J. Garu Cavanillas, Managing Director of Orbita's Ports and Terminals division, explains how he sees such technologies changing the industry in the next ten years.
