In this age of disruption, focusing on our own domains is no longer enough. Greater collaboration along the entire supply chain (and even beyond), in addition to better system-wide optimisation, are crucial to creating sustained success.
When it comes to tackling inefficiencies in global supply chains, we need to move towards building an Internet of Logistics (IoL): an ecosystem of communities connected through interoperability, where platforms and systems can be ‘plug and play’. Interoperability recognises that each player brings unique strengths to the system, and ‘plug and play’, so that we can all innovate boldly without being held back by legacy issues.
The vision is to enable a truly transformed and connected global supply chain, with better possibilities for enhanced cargo flow for all the stakeholders towards developing a smart hyperconnected era of efficient and sustainable logistics, supply chains and transportation
Container ports should spearhead an “Internet of Logistics” to tackle inefficiencies in global container supply chains. A “connected community” beyond the scope of Internet of Things (IoT) technology is needed to improve data sharing. Ccontainer port 4.0’ concept is very much an IoT-driven idea. But when we started to look at connected communities, we realised IoT was not good enough, because we can be good at IT and still be in silos. So we needed to go beyond ports and into adjacencies, into new partnerships to better interface with shipping lines and other LSPs. Transparency in the supply chain with intelligent returnable packaging solutions.
