A Presentation and Conversation With Porter Erisman

Location: Espana Ballroom I

As a vice president at Alibaba Group from 2000 to 2008, Porter Erisman had a front row seat to the e-commerce revolution that swept through China and the world, joining the company just as it moved out of founder Jack Ma’s apartment. He is the writer and director of the documentary film “Crocodile in the Yangtze: The Alibaba Story,” and is also the bestselling author of Alibaba’s World: How a Remarkable Chinese Company Is Changing the Face of Global Business, and Six Billion Shoppers: The Companies Winning the Global E-Commerce Boom. In this session, Erisman will discuss the e-commerce revolution in the context of the logistics capabilities and infrastructure that is needed to support its continued growth.

One-on-One:
A Conversation With CMA CGM's Marc Bourdon

Location: Espana Ballroom I

Marc Bourdon has held some of the most challenging agency roles in a stellar career with CMA CGM. At 35, he took over India, then ran Brazil, both agencies requiring a turnaround, and then he was given increasingly important roles heading the CMA CGM agencies in the United States and, as of last year, China. In an in-depth, one-on-one dialogue, Mark will share his views on a range of topics, including the major trends in China's container trade, the most promising technology developments, the impact of e-commerce on container shipping, and how container carriers can be in the game of creating value for customers.

A Case Study in Practical Blockchain Solutions

Location: Espana Ballroom I

Blockchain technology got its start enabling bitcoin transactions as a secure and cost-effective means to facilitate transactions. The technology aims to share a digital ledger across a network of computers without need for a central authority such as a bank. Today, a growing number of companies across several industries, from financial institutions to freight transportation, are experimenting with blockchain technology. One of them, 300Cubits, in March announced that it had successfully completed the first trial shipment using its crypto-currency called TEU. Ultimately, the company says TEU tokens could provide better predictability or a hedging tool to tackle the volatility of industry cycles. In this Case Study, 300Cubits co-founder Johnson Leung will lead a discussion with Torah Henry, vice president of US operations for apparel and fashion company Speed Sourcing Inc., and Eric Seamon, managing director for forwarder Ocean Wide Logistics International, about the practical uses of blockchain in shipping and what’s next for the technology.

Supply Chain Visibility:
Improving BCOs' View

Location: Espana Ballroom I

Global trade flows are being affected by fast-growing e-commerce, container volumes are growing steadily on most trades, manufacturing cycle times are shortening, orders are smaller and more frequent, less-than-containerload demand is growing, and industry stakeholders are gradually adopting paperless documentation. Effectively monitoring and efficiently shipping these growing volumes in an often time-constrained supply chain has increased complexity to such a level that it can only be managed by the application of technology solutions. Premium services, such as APL’s Eagle GO, can address the visibility and tracking issue, but how far away is complete visibility for all parties in the container supply chain, regardless of the rate paid? What are the challenges standing in the way of true end-to-end visibility? This session will examine the practical solutions to bringing a clearer view of the supply chain for BCOs, the true costs involved, and what collaboration is occurring — or not — among transportation modes and freight stakeholders.

JOC Innovation Jam I:
What Problems Can Technology Really Solve?

Location: Espana Ballroom I

Can the innovative use of logistics technology really solve problems international BCOs face in the world’s most exciting freight region? Asia is the export engine of the world, as well as a rapidly growing consumption market, but it also presents unique challenges for importers, suppliers, and e-commerce logistics companies. The JOC editorial team has challenged technology providers to propose how they would solve actual pain points afflicting shippers. A select group of those providers will face a panel of shipper judges in this “Innovation Jam” to discuss their solutions, with the panel choosing the tech provider presenting the most compelling case. Attendees will hear about a cross-section of the most promising logistics technology, and the winner will be announced at the end of the jam.
