Digitalization, disruptive change and future in the shipping industry

  • Lloyd's Register Strandvejen 104A, 2nd floor 2900 Hellerup Denmark (map)

New and potentially disruptive technologies are changing the nature of many sectors such as retail, aviation and taxi services. So far we have not seen a huge impact on shipping industry. But should and will this last, how can we use the possibilities this offers?

The seminar will focus on what systems and data we have, and what we can use it to. What can we learn from other industries as well as, what the business opportunities the new technologies create for the shipping industry. How can we make the initiatives above give the needed optimizations and saving for our industry and make them tangible and real for each shipping company.

Get a full up to date insight into the possibilities, challenges and what the maritime organizations expect and are looking for when investing in ICT and technology.

Be the first to hear the results from Ericsson's report (will be published in 2017) about how much shipping and maritime companies are investing or planning to invest in major digital infrastructure technologies, and how they’re expected to drive internal transformation. The meeting will also highlight some of the biggest challenges to digital transformation in the shipping industry with "real life" perspectives from a shipowner.
