In the second of our daily updates live from Singapore Maritime Week, our Asia team reflect on another busy day of digital deliberations, report back on the Lloyd’s List Smart Ports Forum and offer their thoughts on what needs to happen next
The technology discussion may finally be morphing into a pragmatic conversation about the realities of the industry as it is, rather than what the tech providers would like it to be
THE Lloyd’s List team are out in force in Singapore this week covering the Maritime Week events, hosting a Lloyd’s List Forum and generally unearthing the stories shaping the industry right now.
Each evening they will be gathering their thoughts on the events of the past 24 hours and offering a quick view of the big themes of the day.
In today’s edition, Lloyd’s List editor Richard Meade is joined by China editor Cichen Shen and Asia news editor Vincent Wee to discuss yet more digitalisation initiatives. In between the marketing puff the team think they might have found the first signs of something a little more substantive.
Picking up on the discussions from the Lloyd’s list Smart Ports forum the team also discuss why technology should be looked at as something that unlocks potential, turning a caterpillar into a butterfly, rather than just creating a faster caterpillar.
