Big data in logistics

About this event

Big data and logistics are made for each other.

And the good news is that the industry is only just beginning to reap the rewards of the rich data streams it has at its disposal.

The logistics ecosystem manages a massive flow of goods and at the same time creates vast data sets. This session will discuss supply chain innovation and value creation across the industry at a time when data has become an essential element of competitive differentiation.

Join us for this 1-hour session hear from the region’s biggest port operator (DP World) as they discuss the pioneering big data initiatives they have implemented over the last 12-18 months (which includes joining the global supply chain platform TradeLens)

Find out how the international hypermarket chain (Lulu Group International) is embracing big data (and other IoT technologies) to ensure its digital infrastructure is ‘world-class’ & delivering optimal operational efficiencies

Hear from DHL as they share case study insights into the application of big data analytics in resource planning optimization and unlocking supply chain value. 

The content will specifically focus on the latest technology and thinking which is providing Beneficial Cargo Owners (BCOs) and exporters with much-needed visibility and transparency (across their supply chains & logistic networks).
