05/22/2019 12:00 05/22/2019 13:00 Industry Forum: Are we entering a new era of innovation for breakbulk? Identifying technology’s true value for the sector ‘Innovation’ and ‘digital disruption’ have become buzz words of the 21st century. But what do they mean for the breakbulk sector, an industry that is frequently labelled as ‘behind the times’ and many would argue is not suitable for digital disruption due its non-standardised nature which defies automation and simplification?
 
This panel will present the findings of the Maritime Cluster North Germany and NBS Northern Business School’s research, focussing on digital trends in the breakbulk business.  
 
Sifting innovation fact from fiction, our panel answers these questions:
  • Current landscape - what solutions and technology are already in use?
  • What technology should be causing disruption already but isn’t - should we change it?
  • What innovations are on the horizon that will impact the way breakbulk is shipped in the future?
  • Where are the opportunities and where are companies starting to invest?
  • How can we become a more forward-thinking industry?
