Project Logistics Digitization: All, Some, or Just a Smidge?
Supply chain visibility can be a rare commodity in the breakbulk sector. The nature of most breakbulk transportation — i.e., changing and/or unpredictable cargo types, volumes, and voyages — and its smaller scale relative to container shipping make it a challenging market to digitize. On the container shipping side, technology providers compete to handle everything from mode-specific container or surface cargo tracking to overall supply chain management with visibility thrown in as a value-added service. Such tech offerings are much sparser for breakbulk, however. This session will explore platforms that tackle all or part of the project cargo logistics supply chain and weigh their costs vs. benefits.
