Are we truly transforming the shipping industry?

Digitalisation. What are the benefits? ROI or ROX? Hype or reality?

The shipping industry is riding its second wave of digitalisation, so it is important to ask: Are we truly transforming the shipping industry? Early adopters now have the ability to report on the successes and tangible benefits that digitalisation have brought to the business and share how they measured their successes and analyse the industry’s digital transformation.

Led by Gijsbert De Jong, Marine Manager & Sales Director – Marine & Offshore, Bureau Veritas, these five maritime innovators are sharing their experiences, and shedding light on misconceptions of the digital transformation:

  • Jiten Mehra, Vice President of Commercial Operations in the Asia Pacific, Torvald Klaveness
  • Michael Rodey, Senior Innovation Manager, Maersk
  • Alexander Varvarenko, Owner & CEO, ShipNext
  • Maria Lambrou, Associate Professor of Digital Business, University of the Aegean
  • Sanjaya Mohottala, Partner & Managing Director in Singapore, The Boston Consulting Group
