Panel Discussion

Know Your Vessel

Knowing your vessel(s) sounds pretty straightforward. But how deeply can you assess the ships you’re dealing with, or considering as counterparties and customers? Behavioral screening is now seen as a crucial part of vessel due diligence. And although some may see it as a sunk cost; for others it can be a selling point, paving the way for enhanced collaboration, and customer and client satisfaction.

Sharing is Caring: Data Driven Safety

Line Dahle, Gard Chief Customer Officer

Charlie Thomas, The Insurance Insider Director of Content (moderator)

MORE SPEAKERS TO FOLLOW

Keeping the seas safe is a goal shared by organizations across the maritime ecosystem. Data and AI can help in everything from loss prevention to vetting to engineering. Many players have their own views, practices, and data to enhance safety, but these are often treated as private. Should they be shared instead? And if so, rather than do this piecemeal, is there an argument for a centralised maritime data bank? Do we have more to gain than fear from sharing, and what are the risks?

From a rising China, to signal-jamming and smuggling – there are plenty of things to keep governments, law enforcement and intel agencies awake at night. So how are they handling these challenges? And does technology help make the seas more secure – or more vulnerable to to threats?

MORE SPEAKERS TO FOLLOW

It’s a big shipping company’s world. In recent years, companies like Maersk, Odfjell, Klaveness, Signal Group and others have armed themselves to the teeth with tech and analytics. How is this impacting the long-tail – the 80% of shipping companies with fewer than 20 vessels? Will smaller companies be permanently consigned to the second division of shipping? What does it mean for brokers?

Presentation

Lux & Loaded

Varun Vira, C4ADS COO

In October of 2018, Supreme Leader of North Korea Kim Jong Un arrived to meet U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in a new Rolls Royce Phantom. Just three months later, Kim Jong Un flaunted yet another new vehicle on Korean Central Television: an armored Mercedes-Maybach S600 Guard, which is marketed to heads of state and is valued at more than $500,000. In Lux & Loaded, C4ADS shows how this vehicle got from Europe to North Korea, illustrating how the pipelines for luxury goods and strategic procurement blend together.
