#SPSC18 Countdown: Prioritising Supply Chain Logisitcs

 05 Sep 2018 11.23am

Last week we previewed the first day of the Smart Ports and Supply Chain Technologies conference (#SPSC18). We revealed the range of subjects our speakers and panellists will be discussing, such as blockchain, port digitization and collaboration between ports and terminals.

Today, we can announce what to expect from the first session of #SPSC18’s second day – ‘Prioritising Supply Chain Logistics: Total E2E Intermodal Planning Processes’.

Once again, top executives will give their insight on one of the industry’s hottest topics.  

Jensen and Yaron will each give presentations on the state of supply chain logistics, with a particular focus on E2E solution models such as integrated terminal and E2E logistics planning process.

They will also talk about logistical trends and ways of improving the efficiency of the inland supply chain, including connecting ports to inland terminals via road and rail.

Yaron recently talked about the topics he intends to discuss at #SPSC18 in an exclusive interview with PTI

To learn more about developments in the maritime industry and to prepare yourself for the conversation around logistics and supply chains, take a look at a technical paper written by #SPSC18 speaker and CEO of SeaIntelligence Consulting, Lars Jensen.

In ‘Liner Shipping in 2025’ he says that the industry is facing a fundamental transformation that will profoundly change existing business models.

Digitization, transparency, supply-chain dispersal and network are likely to be the biggest drivers of this transformation.

In a recent interview, Chuck Schneider, VP and General Manager of Navis, explained the importance of supply chain collaboration.

However, if those resources are still not enough, Port Technology has also published a supply chain eBook 'The Path to Intelligence' to mark the event.
