STAMFORD, Conn. – September 9, 2019 – SHIPPINGInsight’s Chief Evolution Officer, Carleen Lyden Walker, announced today that Wallem Group’s Chief Executive Officer, Frank Coles, will keynote at SHIPPINGInsight 2019. He will be addressing the unprecedented convergence of digitization and shipping, followed by participation in a discussion on “The Holy Grail—Transactional and operational efficiencies—Blockchain, Smart Data IoT, and more!”.

The 2019 SHIPPINGInsight Fleet Optimization Conference & Exhibition is the premier technology conference, exhibition and networking event for maritime industry professionals in North America and will take place at the Stamford Hilton Executive Conference Center October 15th. Themed “2020: A Shipping Odyssey”, this year’s event will cover topical issues as we face the next decade of change and disruption, top-level content providers, and a combination of plenary and breakout sessions to foster more involvement, open discussion and interaction between shipping companies and solution providers. The registration fee covers all conference sessions, continental breakfasts, lunches, coffee breaks, evening receptions and full access to the exhibits. The majority of networking events will take place in the exhibit hall.

“Frank is uniquely qualified to address the impact digitization has had, and will continue to have, on shipping” stated Lyden Walker. “Not only has his corporate career followed the trajectory of the influence of digitization on shipping, from his start with Pacific Basin’s investment in Rydex, to Sperry, Globe Wireless, Inmarsat and most recently Transas, but he has underscored its significance with his vision for Wallem to be the leading provider of technology-driven maritime solutions in a customer-centric and transparent manner.
