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.

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.

Let us know what you think about the session and get involved in the #SPSC18 conversation by using the hashtag on social media.
