What Price Smart Shipping

 

We want to thank Lloyd’s List for inviting Thome to participate in the “What Price Smart Shipping” webinar last October 28, 2021.

 

Thome Group Vice President of Supply Chain Peter Schellenberger represented Thome Group and shared his expertise, experience, and stand on various topics. During the forum, he mentioned the evolution of Digitalization in the maritime industry. “Digitalization is not just a buzz phrase anymore. The maritime industry has started to work together on Digitalization across the stakeholders from organizations, suppliers, owners/managers, and charters, creating real projects and many initiatives around substantial problem statements – because we realize that no authority could help us solve these problems.”

 

He added, “Now, competitors also sit at one table and discuss things that would help standardization and get towards a clearer picture of how we can break down silos, create transparency, and adopt smart tools from start-up companies. A group of players will join this drive, and others will become irrelevant in the future. The maritime industry moves from purely people-driven/centric industry into a breeding ground of smart concepts and tools, for the people.”
