  • 12 Jan 2021
  • 14:00

The maritime trade remains responsible for 90% of global trade. Shifts in consumer trends, such as the boom of e-commerce, though, requires intensified technology integration and innovation in the industry, which has remained fairly traditional in its approach and operations up until recently.

Join us for the webinar on the topic Digitalization in Logistics in the UAE on Tuesday 12 January at 14:00 UAE time / 11:00 NL time, in collaboration with the Embassy and Consulate of the Kingdom of The Netherlands in the UAE and the Netherlands Business Council UAE. 

During this webinar, we will have a closer look at recent digitalization developments in the Netherlands (Port of Rotterdam) and in the UAE (DP World). How has COVID-19 impacted them and what has this meant for their digitalization agendas? What are the lessons learnt? What new opportunities have come up? Sharing best practices between ports UAE/Dubai and NL etc., and the experiences of logistics providers.
