The Singapore Shipping Association (SSA) has formed a new Digital Transformation Committee to help member companies change their business and operating models by leveraging on digital capabilities.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} The Committee, chaired by SSA Councillor Mr. Steen Lund, will seek to achieve internal efficiencies, reduce costs and improve their services for sustained growth in the digital economy.

“I’m also excited that that the Digital Transformation Committee has been formed. This demonstrates a clear commitment by SSA to help our members and the industry chart a sustainable path forward—embracing the challenges and seizing the opportunities—in the age of digital disruption,” said Ms. Caroline Yang, SSA president.

Mr. Lund will be supported by his fellow council member, Mr. Teo Teng Seng, as vice chairman.

The Committee was announced during SSA’s inaugural Tech and Demo Day, which aims to help shipping companies, including the small and medium-sized enterprises (SME), catalyse their adoption of technological innovations by bridging the industry with technology start-ups.

During the Tech and Demo Day, technology providers showcased solutions and services designed to meet the needs of both SME and global shipping players. These solutions ranged from maritime cybersecurity to tele-medicine, and from smart supply chains to using cognitive automation to reduce administrative processes.

“The strong turnout for the Tech and Demo Day—more than 200 participants representing the broad spectrum of Singapore’s maritime community—is a clear signal of the interest among industry players in harnessing technology to strengthen their competitive propositions. The first edition this year focuses on helping bridge maritime SME with nimble technology tailored for their needs,” added Ms. Yang. {/mprestriction}
