Smart Operations Hamburg

Hamburg

The event on how to steal competitive advantage and improve ship operations through the integration of digitally based strategies and solutions.

This popular series returned for its fourth year and runs this year in conjunction with our partners, DNV GL.

With an excellent agenda, superb speakers and an innovative format, this event offered crucial knowledge for all that came.

About Smart Operations

Smart Operations events, from Fathom Maritime Intelligence, examine how to use intelligent shared integration and connected operations to steal the competitive edge through precise critical alignment with customer needs.

Digital disruption in society has created an age where we “need to share not need to know”. Companies must have the knowledge on how to share and thrive, not just hide and survive.

Whether voyage management, cargo rate decisions, positioning, crew management or scheduling; the smarter the core business operations the better the likelihood of achieving sustainable profits.

SMART START

08.00 Registration and coffee

09.00 Starting the Journey

Shipping, as a set of interconnected industries, is on a journey of transition. Whether you believe in simply increasing connectivity for better ship operations, faster safer connections, the disruption of new businesses creating their own opportunities, the potential of blockchain, automation, unmanned ships and even new operating structures from fleets of harmonised vessels, there is a trending trajectory. Smart operations is less about future proofing as shaping it.

In order to get the right surroundings to create thought provoking debate, Smart Operations Hamburg was held at 25Hours Hotel Hafencity.

This fantastic venue was chosen as it is both an innovative and creative building giving inspiration to explore new ideas and ways of working.

Located in the middle of the newly emerging Hafencity the hotel is situated between the Elbphilharmonie, the cruise terminal and the Speicherstadt.

The city centre can be reached on foot or by subway in just 5 minutes.

Elements and materials from shipbuilding are interpreted with a wink and held together with some sailor yarn; 25 sailors from all over the world tell their real stories of dangerous crossings, romantic encounters and painful departures at the 25hours Hotel HafenCity.
