Bernard Marr

Global Supply Chains…a term that was considered niche and specific to an industry is now ubiquitous. Over the past one year, as the pandemic touched every corner of the world, everyone started to understand the importance of a seamless, connected, quick and transparent supply chain. 
 
Hundreds of thousands of containers are on the move as we speak from around the world with essential medical supplies, food produce, relief material and several other goods to be delivered right at our doorstep
 
Dubai based logistics leader and global trade enabler, DP World is playing a major role in advancing global commerce with its 150 operations around the world and a massive team of over 50,000. In 2020, DP World delivered a capacity of more than 100 million TEU (Twenty-foot equivalent unit) in line with market demand.
 
This mammoth 24/7 supply chain operation is at the heart of helping local and global economies stay resilient. But what is at the heart of this complex and global operation? What are some of the digital technologies behind this operation, and their role in ensuring a truly connected supply chain? 
 
To help us understand the impact of these technologies, we have with us Mike Bhaskaran, the Chief Operating Officer at DP World and joining him is Rahul Misra, Vice President, Business Applications for the Lower Gulf region at Oracle.
