#SPSC18 Countdown: Smart Data for Supply Chains


On Monday we continued our countdown to #SPSC18 by revealing what can be expected in the second session of day two, including the fascinating conversation around business models and transformation solutions.

Today, we can give you a glimpse day two’s third session – Smart Data for Next-Gen Ports & Supply Chains. Once again, we’ve got a group top industry executives to give their insight:

  • Stuart White, Business Unit Director, Royal HaskonigDHV

  • Jarno Kuipers, Senior Manager, Terminal Development, Kalmar

  • Mikael Lind, Research Manager Sustainable Transports RISE Viktoria/Research Institute of Sweden

White, Kuipers and Lind will each speak on the necessity for quality data and intelligent analysis, and the extent to which the industry stands to benefit.

They’ll then sit down to a panel discussion, moderated by Yvo Saanen, Commercial Director, TBA, which will be focused on real time made in data time information and associated requirements for global standards.

The panellists will also share their thoughts on data ownership, trust and predictability, with the aim of assessing the real value of data as fuel for the future global economy.



To stay up-to-date with the conversation around standardization in terminals, read a Port Technology technical paper by Timo Lehto, Director of Software Development and Automation at Kalmar

In ‘Open Interfaces: Standardizing Terminal Automation’, Lehto emphasises the speed at which container terminal automation is advancing, and that it’s almost universally recognized as the future of improved container handling productivity.

Discovering ways of standardizing data sharing and multi-stakeholder integration is going to be a crucial step for the industry in the years ahead.

To find out more, listen to Thomas Gylling, Marketing Director of Konecranes, who explains the importance of data sharing and automation.



However, if those resources are still not enough, Port Technology has also published its two e-Books marking the event – The Path to Intelligence and Blockchain in Supply Chains.
