How can data ecosystems solve supply chain pain points
The shipping industry is undergoing a massive digital transformation. To help you keep on top of the latest innovations and technological developments, we have launched #MSCDigitalTalks: a video series featuring interviews with industry movers and shakers.
In each episode, MSC’s CDIO André Simha speaks to a different leader or expert about the future of digitalisation, innovation and technology. The series is part of our efforts to highlight the benefits of digitalisation in container shipping and to promote collaboration and industry standards across the supply chain.

In the latest video, André speaks to Ho Ghim Siew, Head Group Strategy and Cargo Solutions at PSA International: a leading port group and trusted partner to cargo stakeholders with flagship operations in Singapore and Antwerp.

They sat down at PSA’s Singapore headquarters to discuss how digital innovation and better data-sharing in supply chains could be the answer to many of today’s supply chain pain points.

Over the last two years, we've seen a lot of supply chain disruptions and one-off incidents like the Suez Canal and other “Black Swan” events… But I believe that these pain points could be overcome with digitalisation and data, and we find that sharing data is probably the foundational piece.

We understand how difficult the current situation is for both the ports and carriers. If the ports are congested, our vessels cannot berth. If our vessels cannot berth, cargo is not discharged. In the end, it's the customer and consumer who are unhappy. But digitalisation can solve these pain points.
