Smart Ports & Supply Chain Technologies

2-3 October 2018, Rotterdam

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” - Peter Drucker

How many times have you heard that collaboration is the answer? That the world is changing and we need to change too? That we need a ‘chain’ of interacting actors to link logistics?

Then think how many times have you heard real, penetrating conversations on how we’re going to do the above?

We believe it is time to create our own answers for the industry.

You can see that smart ports are engaging in incredibly modern practices that are drawing in the wider supply chain and digital innovation, yet we need to begin talking with each other to create a standard for tomorrow today.

In Rotterdam, Europe’s premier port city, replete with mega-terminals and dynamic start-ups, we are going to bring the supply chain together.

By featuring the world’s top tech analysts, futurists, consultants, and supply chain executives, we want to stride into the unknown and chart new territory.

In this world, you’re either a disruptor, or you’re disrupted. So, make sure you’re on the right side of history.

AI moves so fast it is difficult to get a grip on the changes that are already occurring in the supply chain.

Therefore the PTI conference brought together the top futurists, analysts and engineers in AI Automation and uncovered the secrets of AI Automation, exploring the latest cutting-edge operations along the supply chain, address the human cost and how that can be leveraged, envision what lays in store for humanity and physical trade, and ensure optimum cybersecurity practices are discovered.
