Simultaneously, many shippers (including retailers and CPG companies) are demanding higher visibility in an effort to combat against delays, fraud, and lost shipments. Startups and corporates specifically bringing technology to maritime shipping are gaining traction in the media.

BUT . . . 21 Total Funding: $23M Select Investor: Rocket Internet FreightHub acts as a full service freight forwarder that leverages data analytics and software to help minimize disruptions along the freight supply chain. The startup's platform also provides live location date on various shipments. Total Funding: $14M Select Investors: UPS, Lufthansa Fleet recently pivoted from acting as freight rate marketplace to becoming a digital freight forwarder. It will now offer freight booking, shipment tracking, and customs clearance services, among other services. Startups bring freight forwarding online Visibility 22 San Francisco-based Flexport is the most well-funded startup in the digital freight forwarding space. The company provides real-time freight and logistics capabilities to hundreds of clients, including many small- to-medium e-commerce firms, giving them an opportunity to compete against giants like Amazon.

Maersk's freight-forwarding arm Damco developed a digital freight forwarding platform dubbed "Twill" in April 2017. The platform provides shippers with instant quotes, shipment tracking, and digital document management. It has since expanded to trade operations in China, the UK, India, and France, among others. Freight forwarder DHL released its newest digital supply chain visibility technology "MySupplyChain" in May 2018. MySupplyChain offers unified end-to-end supply chain management software that provides shipment visibility and data analytics to help streamline supply chain operations.

Amazon entered the freight space in 2017, offering services to help organize ocean freight shipments between China and the US for its merchants. The e-commerce giant remains a threat to startups and incumbents alike given its vast sums of money, physical resources (such as existing warehouses), and digital infrastructure. Amazon's entrance into ocean freight coincides with its greater entrance into the third-party logistics (3PL) space. 29 B L O C K C H A I N , A U T O N O M O U S S H I P P I N G , A N D M O R E Transportation 30 ClearMetal provides AI-powered insights into the shipment transportation process for retailers and logistics providers, such as Panalpina.

Select blockchain shipping initiatives (2017 2018) Visibility 34 "The way I see it, there are two ways this could evolve. The first way is one of these blockchain initiatives will gather a lot of momentum and become the standard for the industry that everyone must follow The alternative way might be that different blockchain initiatives become interoperable " B L O C K C H A I N ' S V I A B I L I T Y I N S H I P P I N G R E S T S O N S T A N D A R D I Z A T I O N Gordon Downes, CEO New York Shipping Exchange 35 Blockchain's successful implementation and standardization could mean Recent blockchain initiatives have focused on improving cybersecurity and marine insurance for maritime supply chain players. Increased trade efficiency Higher security Improved transparency The World Economic forum estimates that improving communications via blockchain could generate an additional $1T in global trade. A standardized blockchain for all supply chain players would enable better visibility and flexibility on shipments. Problems or delays can be more quickly avoided, modified, or resolved. 36 Rolls-Royce sells marine division to Kongsberg Autonomous shipping corporates consolidate Rolls-Royce sold its autonomous marine division to maritime equipment supplier Kongsberg for $664M in June 2018. Rolls-Royce Commerce Marine has been a powerhouse in developing autonomous marine technology. The acquisition will be a welcome addition for Kongsberg, as it also seeks to become a leader in autonomous shipping. The company partnered with Wilhelmson to start a new autonomous shipping venture dubbed Massterly in Spring 2018. 37 San Francisco-based Shone seeks to retrofit existing ships with autonomous technologies to aid existing on-board crews. The company's technology uses AI and existing ship sensors to help detect and predict the movement of other vessels nearby 24/7.

Most recently, the port partnered with IBM to incorporate AI and IoT technology into its operations to help increase efficiency. Both partners estimate the project will help save shippers one hour of berthing time, which runs up to $80,000 per hour. Other ports embracing automation: Antwerp Singapore Shanghai 41 Ports support maritime and supply chain startup innovation The Ports of Singapore, Rotterdam, and Hamburg have all helped start or support port-, supply chain-, and maritime-related incubators and accelerators.

Will stay on schedule more often due to less port congestion. Retail/CPG: Can save money from less time at terminal; goods are more likely to get to customers on time. Truckers: Port efficiency helps cut down on delays for truckers. Effects of maritime shipping and supply chain innovation N E A R - T E R M M I D - T E R M L O N G - T E R M Incumbent freight forwarders: While incumbents benefit from freight booking startups that connect existing supply chain players, they are threatened by digital freight forwarders seeking to displace them. Retail/CPG: Freight booking visibility allows greater supply chain flexibility, an important factor when navigating new global tariffs. Carriers / ship owners: Carriers and other ship owners will directly benefit from fuel efficiency savings as they will be able to comply with the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) impending 2020 sulphur fuel cap. Entire supply chain: If blockchain standardization among the global supply chain is achieved, all players involved in shipping goods will save money on paperwork, decrease shipment delays, and avoid fraud. Retail/CPG: Will allow retailers/CPGs to more easily track product history in the case of contamination. Carriers: Carriers may save money on future ship operations due to decreased crew size, increased operational safety, and increased cargo space onboard ships that the crew used to occupy. 44 Questions?
