#SPSC18 Countdown: Collaboration and Standardization


Yesterday’s Smart Ports and Supply Chain Technologies conference (#SPSC18) preview looked at the Smart Supply Chain and gave a taste of what our speakers will talk about.

Today we're revealing more about the conference’s fourth session – ‘Collaboration and Standardization: Global Processes Implementation for Smart Exception Management'.

In the moderator’s chair is Guenter Schmidmei, Senior Vice-President at Kalmar.

He’ll be overseeing talks from top industry executives on the biggest trends and technologies driving the sector.


The Panellists:


Kerdjoudj-Belkaid, Rook and Heijmann will each get 10 minutes to present their views on the growing necessity for global process standardization and collaboration before being joined by Katherine Foster, Chief Strategy Officer, Blockchain Labs for Open Collaboration.

They’ll then discuss how to facilitate interoperation between platforms and increase reliability and predictability across cargo flows.

The panellists will also share their thoughts on smart port supply chain integration, common regulation, smart contracts and paperless border processes.



To stay up-to-date with the conversation around standardization, take a look at a technical paper co-written by Kalmar’s Director of Software Development, Director of Terminal Automation and Product Manager of Automation.

They say that when it comes to standardizing and integrating terminal systems, there is still much work to be done.

Discovering new ways of collaborating on data and standardizing processes is a massive talking point right now in the maritime industry.

A driving force for change will be automation, which is why you should listen to Antti Kaunonen, President of Kalmar, who explains more about what the future holds for automation and brownfield sites.
