    SOLAS - Verified Gross Mass Regulations

    SOLAS - Verified Gross Mass Regulations

    Greg from BISON Jacks discusses SOLAS Verified Gross Mass regulations.  We discuss how the International Maritime Organization (IMO) enforced SOLAS regulations to ensure that shippers of containerized cargo correctly verify the gross weight of shipping containers.



    Shippers must use Method 1 or Method 2 to correctly declare gross mass.  Greg explains how BISON Jacks came to develop a compact jacks system that allows shippers to weigh loaded shipping containers on site and instantly receive an electronic Verified Gross Mass Certificate.  We discuss how this solution can bring time and cost savings in different use cases along the supply chain, and how they are used in over 40 countries around the world.

    Collapsible Shipping Containers

    Collapsible Shipping Containers

    Nicholas from CEC systems discusses how collapsible shipping containers can be used throughout the supply chain.  We discuss the logistics issues throughout the supply chain that will be solved through reliable collapsible containers.



    Imbalanced supply supply chains results in re-positioning empty shipping containers around the world.  This lead to Nicholas and his team at CEC systems to design and engineer a collapsible shipping container that is strong, reliable, easy to use and can handled and stacked like any other shipping container.  The containers are available in the market now and will continue to provide better solutions for multi-modal transport.

    The Future of Global Supply Chains

    The Future of Global Supply Chains

    Brian from the Worldwide Supply Chain Network discusses how Global Supply Chains are being affected by Brexit, Tariff updates and trade wars.  We discuss how businesses involved in the import export process can minimize the impact these changes will have to their business.



    Brian discusses how tariff changes can impact supply chains and freight flows in the short term, and how these may have a more long term impact on supply chains.  We discuss the options that companies have to absorb the increased costs or pass these on to end consumers within each industry.



    Brian and Lisa setup the first 'New York Supply Chain' meetup which has quickly expanded into the 'Worldwide Supply Chain Network'.  The goal of these meetups is to bring together the technology companies and big businesses that need to work together to reinvent supply chain management.  Parties that want to launch a supply chain chapter in their own country can go to www.theworldisasupplychain.com or contact Brian and Lisa for more details.
