Andre Simha, MSC’s Global Chief Digital & Innovation Officer, will be attending and speaking at Manifest24, on the panel titled "The State of Digital Transformation & Data Sharing". Scheduled to take place from 5-7 February in Las Vegas, Manifest stands as a premier gathering for innovators and changemakers in the global supply chain.
Manifest attracts a diverse audience, including Fortune 500 global supply chain executives, logistics service providers, and investors, creating an unparalleled environment for knowledge exchange and networking.
During the panel discussion, Andre will share his thoughts on the state of digitalization in shipping and provide his perspective on the operational benefits of sharing data.
Given the current situation, it seems unlikely that there will be a centralized data sharing platform across the entire industry. While attempts have been made to create such a program, for the foreseeable future, shippers, carriers, and stakeholders across the supply chain will likely advance data sharing through a series of networks and agreements, as opposed to one central platform. What then are the best ways to ensure that we can advance this important initiative and indeed necessity for our industry while remaining aware of sensitivities?
Andre’s decades of experience and strategic vision as the Chief Digital & Innovation Officer for the world’s largest ocean carrier will contribute to stimulating debate with expert panel participants, offering attendees a unique opportunity to gain valuable insights into the transformative power of digital innovation.
Specifically, Andre will highlight the importance of using standardized data to make container shipping smarter through real-time information, tracking, and monitoring across the entire supply chain. In addition, Andre plans to highlight MSC’s key role as a driver of digitalization through leadership and participation in the Digital Container Shipping Association (DCSA), commitment to Electronic Bill of Lading (eBL) adoption, and work across the U.S. FLOW initiative.
