Digitisation, Automation, Innovation:
Revolutionising Commercial Sea Freight
Technology presents container operators with a vital lifeline. As freight rates fall and costly fuel regulations loom, the market’s biggest players have embraced digitisation as a key component of enhanced vessel maintenance, inventory management and customer service delivery.
The inaugural Smarter Shipping conference will tap into the opportunity that digitisation affords. Those opportunities are innumerable. Leveraging big data and software more broadly can allow for the more effective distribution of containers, improved contracting and clearer inventory oversight for increasingly demanding customers. On the infrastructure side, automation, sensing and robotics can contribute to decreased crew sizes, rapid physical stock manoeuvre and enhanced navigation.
Smarter Shipping 2018 will be your first opportunity to explore how innovative technology can deliver a smarter fleet for the future, one which safeguards shipping’s place in the global supply chain.
