DP World joins the Digital Supply Chain Institute to overcome supply chain challenges
DP World has joined the Digital Supply Chain Institute (DSCI) to work with its members on new solutions to overcome supply chain challenges.
The DSCI community aims to help members interact with each other, uncover pressing supply chain issues and pioneer industry-transforming solutions.
“The focus of DSCI on supply chain is core to what we do at DP World,” said Mike Bhaskaran, Chief Operating Officer for Digital Technology at DP World. “We have grown from a local port operator to a global end-to-end supply chain solution provider. It’s a journey that is ongoing and collaboration will be the key.”
DP World delivers a range of services through an interconnected global network of 295 business units in 78 countries across six continents. The company will participate in two DSCI projects—Data Trading and future Constellation of Value--that will explore strategies to realize more value from data and ways to collaborate with partners to meet customer needs effectively.
DP World cited DSCI’s approach to applied research and collaborative learning on joint projects with members.
“In the incubation stages, DSCI provides a good forum to test new ideas with the members of the community. We can roll out ideas, have discussions with members, get their feedback and then work toward collaborative learning.” said Bhaskaran.
“We are very honored to have DP World become a member of the DSCI community. Their approach of anticipating change and deploying industry-leading technology to create smart, efficient, and innovative trade solutions, aligns with DSCI’s mission,” said Marko Kovacevic, DSCI Managing Director. “Having them on board strengthens our focus on creating next-generation resilient and customer-centered supply chains.”
