Dea Chincuanco

dship Carriers

Vice President, Strategy and Commercial Management

Dea Chincuanco is Vice President of Strategy and Commercial Management for dship Carriers in Houston. One thing she is particularly proud of in her current workplace is the company’s gender parity, as Ms. Chincuanco is deeply committed to developing the next generation of leaders with productivity, diversity and equity as top priorities. In collaboration with dship's headquarters in Hamburg, she manages the future-focused strategic planning with a focus on sustainability and efficiency, to provide value-added services to the current market and beyond.

For more than two decades, Dea Chincuanco has been helping companies meet their business needs and objectives in the maritime industry and beyond, continually honing her skills in supply chain management, logistics and organizational development. Working with project carriers, EPCs, OEMs and freight forwarders to meet their global project requirements is just one part of her extensive portfolio. Through her consultancy, she has also extended project chartering services, maritime law case analysis and renewable energy start-up procurement and seed funding guidance. Not one to shy away from a challenge, Ms. Chincuanco is always looking for opportunities to exercise her creative yet analytical mind and further her education. This led her to pursue and complete a Master of Global Business Management at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in 2021.

Ms. Chincuanco’s passion for global leadership development and diversity, equality and inclusion (DEI) extends beyond her work and has led to a variety of projects and initiatives. In addition to co-founding Pax et Lux: A Global Leadership Podcast, where she talks with thought leaders and luminaries about the influences that have shaped their lives and careers, she has also served as vice chair and board member of an Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) organization founded by the first AAPI Texas State Representative. Her dedication and commitment have not gone unnoticed, and she has been featured on KHOU Channel 11 and Austin (TX) In-Focus News, in educating and speaking out against anti-Asian American sentiment and prejudice.

    From Fossil Fuels to Hydro: Pivoting Toward a New Generation of Projects

    While fossil fuels will continue to dominate energy generation for many years, a concurrent drive toward sustainability, decarbonization, and greener solutions is gathering strength and affecting the nature of project logistics. Political and institutional mandates for energy and supply-chain security, decarbonization, disrupted trade relationships, risk management, near-sourcing: A tsunami of market forces is shifting focus and direction for many project owners and the contractors and logistics service providers that work for them. In many cases, the skillsets and relationships formed in a traditional oil- and gas-focused environment must be transferred to new project types and rapidly changing trade lanes. What stays and what goes? Where are the opportunities? This panel of seasoned project logistics professionals will discuss what in this dynamic new world of opportunities and risks they are most focused on, most excited about, and most wary of.
