Five new ocean carriers have joined the Digital Container Shipping Association (DCSA) including CMA CGM, Evergreen, Hyundai Merchant Marine, ZIM, and Yang Ming.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Joining the existing members, which includes Maersk, Hapag-Lloyd, Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) and Ocean Network Express (ONE), the DCSA will continue to push for standardisation in the shipping industry.

“We are thrilled to have additional members joining the DCSA on our journey to drive standardisation and interoperability in the industry, with CMA CGM joining as a founding member. It is critical for our success that the standards developed will be implemented, and the commitment and engagement of many container shipping lines is therefore crucial,” said Thomas Bagge, CEO of Digital Container Shipping Association.

From July 1, 2019, Henning Schleyerbach will take on the role as the chief operating officer of DCSA. Mr  Schleyerbach comes from the position of senior director customer relationship management at Hapag-Lloyd and will work alongside Mr Bagge on the development of standards for the industry.

“CMA CGM is always looking for best practices and standards to support the innovation and digitial strategy of the company. Being a founding member will enable us to work together on setting the standards for digitisation of the entire industry,” said Rajesh Krishnamurthy, executive vice president IT & Transformations, CMA CGM.

“Digitisation is not only right but also the only path to follow for all of the stakeholders in the shipping industry. Hyundai Merchant Marine will cooperate with colleague liners very closely to find out the best route for greeting the upcoming digital era. We strongly believe in that the collective intelligence makes the better outcomes,” said Kyungin Jung, senior vice president, CIO of Hyundai Merchant Marine.{/mprestriction}
