The Maritime CIO Forum Rotterdam

The Maritime CIO Forum Rotterdam

Wednesday, 26th September 2018

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 your cargo 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?

At the same time, the industry is reacting to the advent of increased cyber threats borne out of the growing use of cloud and IoT applications, number of devices used and larger ships but fewer crew. We will investigate current business cases, detection systems and policies already in place, and we will discuss collaboration in the industry to establish safe on-board pathways.

Digital Ship's Annual Maritime CIO Forum Rotterdam will investigate how we can harness all these opportunities and will debate which are going to stick and really make a difference.  Through 3 clearly defined plenary sessions, an innovations & ideas Lunch, and informative question and answer panel sessions, we will focus on practical methods and will bring together representatives to discuss the future of digitisation in the industry.
