Supply Chain Innovation Summit 2018

18 – 20 September 2018, Pullman Melbourne on the Park, Australia

Becoming elastic, integrated and customer-centric in the ecommerce era
Customers are increasingly dictating how companies structure their supply chains. With the rise of online shopping customers can now shop anywhere, anytime and expect more gratifying and enjoyable experiences from retailers. Recent statistics have shown that multichannel shoppers spend nearly 50% more each year.

However, meeting the multichannel consumer’s increasing expectations for speed and convenience (at low/no added cost) is causing unprecedented sector disruption, globally. In a truly global and digitalized market place where end to end customer engagement is becoming a given, it is vital that supply chain leaders understand how they can evolve their operations, processes and systems to better meet their customers’ expectations.

A recent McKinsey supply chain report ranked increased customer demand volatility and increasing customer expectations as the top 2 current challenges for organisations’ from a supply chain perspective. Furthermore, increasing pressure from global competition is ranked as the top challenge for supply chains over the coming 5 years. Without an effective online supply chain strategy in place, Australian retailers run the risk of losing out to local and overseas competitors.

Attend this practical summit and learn how to:

  • Integrate emerging technology into your supply chain operations
  • Leverage predictive analytics to drive responsiveness, elasticity and integration across your entire supply chain
  • Reengineer your operating model to improve efficiency and become truly customer centric

Maritime Cyber Security for Managers

30 – 31 March 2017, Hong Kong
Event Organiser: CBS Executive

We now live in a world where the new normal is 1 million new virus and 110 billion spams every day. This paradigm shift has been hitting hard the Internet, the global economy, and the maritime industry is particularly vulnerable to it. CBS Executive has chosen Hong Kong to deliver its first “Maritime Cyber Security” course for Managers on 30 & 31 March 2017.

CBS Executive to deliver a Maritime Cyber Security course for Managers – Hong Kong

Piracy is no longer just a matter of gangs entering vessels in the middle of the night. The threat of cyber space is building up rapidly with the potential of posing even bigger risks, also for the crews. Ghost ships, AIS spoofing, phantom cargoes, GPS jamming, smuggling, ECDIS manipulation, cyber piracy, ransomware, and spear-phishing are now common occurrences.

The maritime industry seems to be rather unaware and unprepared. And considering the asset & cargo high values involved, as well as its global exposure, the cost of cyber security breaches in the maritime sector ranges from millions of US$ to hundreds of millions. But there are concrete measures. And it is those that this “Maritime Cyber Security” course apprehends and teaches in a very detailed and practical way.

This 2 days course will provide both maritime business and IT managers with a solid foundation upon which to initiate a closer review of their cyber defenses. Most crucially, the course makes it clear how cyber security has to be embedded not only in the IT department, but throughout the business processes and daily behavior of all employees. It will also show actual examples to illustrate different types of cyber-attacks designed in such a way that deep IT technical knowledge is not required.

The course is aimed at C-Level Executives from shipping lines, shipping agents, ship & crew management companies, charterers, brokers, commodities traders, port & terminal authorities/ developers/ operators, port & maritime suppliers and service providers, government and regulator, institutions, insurance and P&I clubs, freight forwarders specialized in maritime, banks and investors, law firms, and risk mitigation firms specialized in shipping and trade finance.

The “Maritime Cyber Security” course will be delivered by Lars Jensen, a member of CBS Executive faculty team. Lars is also CEO and a Partner with SeaIntel Consulting, the co-founder of SeaIntel Maritime Analysis, and CEO and founder of CyberKeel, focusing on cyber-security in the maritime industry. Lars past positions in the maritime industry include Director of driving and developing market intelligence & analysis for Maersk Line, Maersk Logistics and The Containership Company, CEO of the purely online container carrier Youship, and the head of developing and implementing eCommerce strategy in Maersk Line.

Heavy Iran

9 March 2017, The Hotel Espinas Palace, Tehran, Iran
Event Organiser: Heavy World

We are pleased to announce the II International Conference «HEAVY IRAN», March 9, «Espinas Hotel», Tehran, Iran. At the conference, we will talk over all aspects of OOG and heavylift logistics in this country.
On April 27, 2016, the 1st International Conference “HEAVY IRAN 2016” successfully took place. It was attended by more than 60 delegates from Iran, Iraq, Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, UAE, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands and Turkey. The Conference was sponsored by Russian “Volgo-Dnepr” and Italian “Cometto”.
As known, international isolation of Iran drastically restrained development of the entire economy of the country, including machine-building, shipping, chemical industry, resulting in high level of inflation and unemployment. However, in the nearest future, all sanctions against Iran may be lifted and around $150 billion will be released from blocked bank accounts. The country will face a real investment boom, and not only in the oil and gas sector. Unfrozen assets will be used to modernize the economy, as continuous blocking of investments has led to lack in technology. Just so, the average oil recovery factor in oilfields of Iran is one of the worlds lowest. Nevertheless, 67 petrochemical projects are currently under implementation in Iran, including construction of Persian Gulf Star Refinery with the capacity of 360 thousand barrels per day. It is expected that by 2020 Iran will take 41% of the petrochemical market of the entire Western Asia (Near and Middle East).
The need for modernization of industry will entail considerable volume of project cargoes. In the next few years, Iran may become a leader in consumption of services in the field of oversize and heavy loads transportation and installation among the Arabian Gulf countries.

Among the Conference topics:
-Potential of Iranian transport infrastructure (ports, roads, bridges)
-Sharing practice of delivering project cargoes in the direction of Iran
-Particulars of state regulation of the transport sector

Your company has experience in the delivery of project cargoes to Iran? Perhaps, it will be interesting to you to tell about this experience to the participants of the conference?

Iran is waiting for you!
