Everyone says the value of data is as high as it's ever been, but the global logistics industry has a particularly hefty challenge in that data is produced, submitted, and consumed by a huge number of parties, few of which have native integrations with one another. Additionally, nearly every organization is sitting on a vast trove of data — some already digitized, some not — that is waiting to be leveraged. So the challenge isn’t so much access to data, but rather to have a strategy in place to clean it, contextualize, and use it. The challenges are huge, but not insurmountable, and the opportunities are even larger. This session will focus on steps to be taken to organize data and what the benefits of that organization can mean in managing containerized supply chains.
