  • Can Ports Leverage Diversity to Propel Innovation?

However, with more imaginative senior appointments seen more recently at some port authorities, are we witnessing the beginning of a sea change in port management diversity? How can an injection of diverse, new blood into both senior and middle management at ports propel innovation?

    Wednesday 17 February | 3PM CET

    Watch on Demand

    Today a whole profusion of individual port and shipping data sharing platforms co-exist, many of which have been initiated by ports, shipping lines, data associations and governmental agencies. In a world where a vessel making a ships call in one of the world's 900 ports needs to send and receive messages to many different parties, what can be done to harmonize data collaboration and orchestration?
