How to secure and automate your network in the new era of big data

Digital Ship - Maritime CIO Forum - Shipping and Freight Resource


Digitalisation is re-shaping the business world and is increasingly important for competitive edge. Transformational concepts, together with the evolution and development of new platforms, are providing unparalleled opportunities within shipping and the related transport and supply chain infrastructure.

If Industry 4.0 is to be truly realised, then shipping must embrace a new approach to the traditional supply chain. Moving a container from A to B involves, on average, 30 different actors and 200+ interactions – delivery of goods has never been more transparent, nor more complex. So, what can digitalisation do to streamline and integrate shipping with the broader supply chain?

Join us in London on 21 June to investigate how we can measure the impact of digital business and harness the benefits of new technologies to improve performance – from ship to shore to delivery.

Across four key sessions we will discuss how we can identify the real digital opportunity in front of us and re-define digitalisation in maritime and transport. Sessions will include plenary and expert-led panel sessions to enable interaction between audience and speakers, and will cover:

Session 1:  The Maritime Satcom Summit – Investigating the evolution of mobile connectivity

Session 2:  Harnessing Cyber Resilience & Managing Risk – A fresh look at cyber security, safety & risk

Session 3:  The iShipping Revolution – Streamlining the supply chain

Session 4:  Can Digital Drive Optimisation & Efficiency? – How to judge an investment case

  2. Hi Hariesh,
    Thank you for keeping this site relevant and exciting, over the years I have learnt a lot from the posts and discussions posted on the various topics.
    In keeping with the topic at hand, can you please give us an update with the new RCG process & requirements.
    I know that there much trepidation amongst many of the players and there is frantic race to try and affairs in order before this process is fully implemented.

    Thank you again,
    Vishen Ganesan
