Finding Success Through Collaboration

Join us for an immersive and enlightening conference where industry innovators and stakeholders come together to explore the transformative power of collaboration in the maritime world.

In an era defined by rapid globalisation and evolving trade landscapes, the container shipping industry stands at a pivotal juncture. Now more than ever, success hinges on our ability to forge meaningful partnerships, foster innovation, and adapt to emerging challenges.

Major changes to container shipping’s biggest alliances are on the horizon. While coronavirus lockdowns are now over, continued geopolitical turmoil in the Middle East and beyond has caused rerouted shipments, and ongoing delays, and has even contributed to the rise of nearshoring. Everyone in the industry needs to understand how these forces are likely to affect their business in the coming months: our panellists will provide their expert opinions on how to maintain efficient operations.

How can digital technologies transform the efficiency and sustainability of shipping on land? In this panel, experts will share their insights on how to leverage data, automation, and blockchain to improve road and rail freight operations. They will also discuss the challenges and opportunities of implementing innovative solutions in a complex and dynamic environment.

With the cold chain evolving rapidly to keep up with the demand for food and medicine, this expert panel will showcase some of the latest reefer technologies and will provide case studies of how they have revolutionised the cold chain.

This forum will provide an opportunity for participants to hear high-level insights on the challenges and opportunities of container financing and insurance in the current context of geopolitical instability. Speakers from various sectors of the shipping industry will share their experiences and best practices on how to manage risk, secure funding, and protect assets in volatile markets.

For innovation to thrive, businesses across the container logistics sector must work together - easier said than done, some might say. This panel will assess the progress made through recent platform collaboration efforts and showcase how it has fuelled standardisation and the adoption of smart containers.

Modern ports face many challenges, such as increasing congestion, environmental impact, security threats, and changing customer demands. How can ports leverage technology to overcome these challenges and become more sustainable, efficient, and resilient? Learn how technology can enable ports to optimise their performance, reduce their carbon footprint and enhance their competitiveness in the global market.

The Red Sea is one of the most important and strategic waterways in the world, connecting Asia, Africa, and Europe. It is also a hotspot of geopolitical tensions, environmental challenges, and piracy threats that pose significant risks to the shipping industry. Join this forum to learn how shippers, operators, and regulators can navigate the complex and volatile situation in the Red Sea and ensure the safety and security of their vessels and cargo.

The business case for integrating artificial intelligence into your day-to-day operations has never been stronger. This panel has extensive experience in using AI to develop efficient business practices and will share real-world examples of how AI is improving the container shipping industry.

This forum will examine how the maritime industry continues to benefit from the use of IoT technologies, such as smart containers, sensors, and trackers. The speakers will present case studies and best practices on how IoT can improve cargo visibility, efficiency, and security, as well as address recent efforts toward standardisation.

Recent customs changes have stalled container logistics in Europe, including the EU’s new pre-arrival programme and the impact of the Brexit agreement on regulatory controls at the EU/UK border. This panel will discuss how shippers and carriers can reduce the amount of time cargo spends at borders.
