Ocean Insights Supports TPM: The World’s Largest Shipping Conference

If your business deals in ocean freight, then TPM is the must-attend conference for 2021. TPM, organized by The Journal of Commerce within IHS Markit, is the premier conference for the trans-Pacific and global container shipping and logistics community. Founded in 2001, TPM annually presents the industry’s most in-depth program delving into the most pressing challenges affecting container shippers in North America and globally. The event attracts the most senior-level audience in this industry and is a platform for a week of essential and intensive networking, negotiations, and relationship building among the multiple parties in the international container shipping supply chain: shippers, carriers, forwarders, technology providers, trucking operators, railroads, ports, terminals, and many others who participate in this market.

Why Attend TPM21?

The theme of TPM this year is “Redefining the Future”, which couldn’t be more appropriate, given all that we’ve collectively experienced during 2020. The very nature of logistics has changed drastically. Supply chains have had to be reimagined and all of the old playbooks for how business used to be conducted has gone out the window. Now more than ever, supply chain managers, logistics specialists, shippers, freight forwarders, and carriers all need to be looking at the future with a fresh perspective and a new understanding of what is now the “new normal.”

Ocean Insights is a Proud Sponsor of TPM21

We’re proud to announce that Ocean Insights is one of the sponsors helping to make TPM21 a virtual event this year. Our very own Robin Jaacks will be part of the panel, Seeing More Clearly? Assessing the Cost-Benefit Value of Container Sensors as part of the Logistics Technology Breakthrough Track. 

Ocean Insights will also be discussing our Container Sailing Schedules and our Container Track and Trace platforms and how they can add value to your business.
