In his speech at the PowerLogistics Asia 2013 conference this October, Per Thörnblom, Group Project Logistics Manager for the GAC Group will outline the key advantage that dedicated software brings to the planning of heavy lift projects, and how the smart application of technology facilitates the engineering of detailed solutions to ensure timely, safe and on-budget execution.

Computer Aided Drawing (CAD) is emerging as a vital element in planning how to load and store complex shipments. Lashing calculations identify the best way to secure cargo on a vessel. And onboard stability and weather routing software help plan a safe and efficient voyage.

“Project logistics is a diverse and demanding field, in which having the right skills, knowledge and experience is essential,” says Thörnblom. “Project skills are built on practical experience and a solid background in shipping and logistics – and we now have new tools to enhance that expertise.”

Many of the world’s leading project forwarding professionals and their clients from the EPC (Engineering, Procurement & Construction], oil & gas, energy and mining sectors will gather at the Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands Hotel for PowerLogistics Asia 2013. Participants from throughout the Middle East, Indian Subcontinent, Asia and Australia will include industry giants such as Chevron, Technip, Jacobs Engineering, Mammoet, Jumbo Shipping, SAL Heavy Lift, Panalpina, JAS Forwarding and many more.

"Attracting talent to the project logistics sector will also be a key topic at the conference. Finding the people with the right skill-sets is important, but so too is utilising specialist staff already within the organisation," says Thörnblom.
