Transforming from supply-driven to a consumer-centric/demand driven organisation

-          What will it take to steer your supply chain on your criteria of choice: reliability, costs, sustainability or flexibility?

-          Internet transparency and emerging Platforms will increasingly satisfy this need, like other sectors have shown before. A critical factor is the alignment of the 24x7 sea transport with the planning on land. Inland transport and industry production have a different clock rate, since they are largely planned in office hours. A second factor is the availability of validated inland data, like displayed in the Navigate route planner (available on line) which will help cargo shippers and Platforms to optimise and define their routes.

Paul Walter, Head Digital Strategy & Innovation, Port of Rotterdam
