    Part II: Shipz.com

    In this follow up to our previous episode, Jonathan and Sarah chat all things shipz.com! We learn about the platforms' origins, how it will serve the shipping industry, and the transformational impact Shipz has on the experience of Shippers and Service Providers. We explore features like tracking and booking, and discuss why accurate maths and data normalisation are critically important to the shipment process. 

    If you're a Shipper (importer, exporter, eCommerce seller, or BCO) head over to shipz.com and create your account: You can start for free, track your first five shipments for free, and request quotes from a whole range of Verified Service Providers for free, too. There's no monthly lock in: You only pay once a booking is confirmed.

    If you're a Service Provider (freight forwarder, 3PL, or NVOCC) create your free account, then step through our Verified Provider process so you can quote and receive payments for bookings. Again, no monthly lock in: You only pay once a booking is confirmed.

    We are excited for the launch of shipz.com, and we hope you are too!

    Transformational Digitization - Julian (Logixboard)

    "Our industry isn't going to change. People are never going to log into online systems. They will always want to deal directly with people!". 

    We've observed a colossal amount of change over the last 24 months. COVID has completely changed how we all work, interact and go about our business. Alongside the chaos stands technology providers like Logixboard, who offer solutions for the modern, contactless, digital, customer-centric, and online era.  In an informative and engaging discussion with Co-Founder Julian Alvarez, we hear about: 

    - Julian's journey from seeing a distinct need 6 years ago to now
    - The discovery of supply-chain operating systems without customer-facing solutions
    - How ongoing technological shifts, are being driven by shipper demand
    - Why Teams and a 'People First' culture is critical to Logixboard's success

    If you're associated with a small-to-medium freight forwarder, you'll hear practical insights that will transform your business operations and help you win new customers. And if you're a supply-chain enthusiast you'll hear how modern systems can tangibly change how cargo moves across the world!

    New Beginnings In A Chaotic New Normal

    New Beginnings In A Chaotic New Normal

    Join host Jonathan Kempe, and special guests Eric Dawicki and Jillian Carson-Jackson, on Let’s Talk Supply Chain Asia Pacific’s’ first ever episode! Jonathan, Eric and Jillian discuss a range of relevant, pressing and engaging topics, including: The characteristics and character of those that serve at sea; causes of the current disruptions in supply chains and across the maritime domain; the experience of a woman in maritime; the seafarer crisis, and how it has impacted professionals at sea, and global supply-chains. Eric and Jillian share their personal stories and reflections of being influenced, assisted, and challenged during their careers at sea.
    Eric’s reflections on the current state of the supply-chain industry is decisive and thought-provoking. Jillian’s account as a woman in maritime is particularly moving – It is clear, even though great strides have been made, that there is still a lot of work to be done to support women who work in maritime environments. We also cover the evolving seafarer crisis, that has increased the disruption of global supply chains, and dramatically impacted the lives of many hard-working seafaring professionals. A call to change, and a message of support from the President of WISTA Australia, rounds out the episode.
     It is a privilege to hear from two seasoned practitioners. We look forward to further stimulating discussions with a range of guests from the Asia Pacific region, and from all over the world!
