#SPSC18 Countdown: The Smart Supply Chain


Following on from yesterday’s introduction of the Port Digitisation session, part of the Smart Ports and Supply Chain Technologies conference (#SPSC18), here’s another glimpse of what you can expect in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, on October 2-3, 2018!

‘The Smart Supply Chain: Total End-to-End Data Integration Solutions’ is the third session of the conference and is sure to be a massive highlight of the event.

Kris Kosmala, VP of Asia Pacific division at Quintig, a specialist in supply chain planning and optimization software, will be moderating as three top industry executives have their say on the big trends and technologies affecting the supply chain and maritime industry.



Lehmacher and Rossi will speak for 10 minutes before sitting down to a panel discussion.

They’ll talk about what steps can be taken to integrate the end-to-end supply chain ecosystem, in particular, IoT applications and what can be done to develop greater ways of communicating.

The speakers will also share their views on how to build better infrastructure facilities for transportation networks and compete against E2E supply chain owners.



To keep engaged with the smart supply chain conversation, you may want to read a technical paper from conference speaker Wolfgang Lehmacher, which gives a holistic view of how the supply chain is changing thanks to IoT and AI.

In his opinion, data is the oil of the digital economy, and friction in the data flow affects the whole system.

How container lines, port operators and all other companies in the supply chain process and analyze the data they receive is crucially important.

However, if those resources are still not enough to saturate your brain with information on supply chains, Port Technology has also published its first e-Book marking the event – The Path to Intelligence.
