Save the date 8 October Digitalisation webinar



The webinar – “Future of Shipping: Digitalization” will be held online on 8 October 2020 from 10 a.m – 12 a.m (BSM, GMT+1).

Shipping, the backbone of the world economy, is undergoing a digital transformation. These challenging times have highlighted the need for greater resilience in global supply chains and the benefits that digitalisation offers. However, the maritime sector has yet to unlock digitalisation’s full potential. How can digitalisation make shipping and ports more resilient, efficient and green? How do we collaborate to address the challenges involved and to increase access to the benefits? What should be the next step for digitalisation in the future of shipping and ports?

The webinar will hear presentations on the potential that digitalization offers to make the maritime supply chain more resilient even in the face of new demands, and also discuss how to overcome challenges faced by maritime administrations and the industry on their digitalization voyage.

The IMO and the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore are jointly organizing two webinars on the Future of Shipping, on 17 September 2020 and 8 October 2020. The webinars seek to share insights on digitalization, decarbonisation and trade in a disrupted world following the global COVID-19 pandemic.
