Opinion Piece: Changing Face of Container Logistics
An industry platform that covers all aspects of container logistics needs to integrate all the steps involved in shipping, storage and redirection. It would be accessible to all stakeholders in the port community, and make business sense through savings in efficiency and a decrease in container down-time.

The white paper will show that a platform that integrates a suite of solutions to increase productivity for the Port community is not only desirable, but ultimately vital in reshaping container logistics.
It will examine the great shift away from the dichotomy of ‘seller’ and ‘buyer’ and show how businesses evolve from selling products to developing platforms, with reference to the Port community logistics platform 1-Stop.
