With the rise of blockchain technology in the 21st century, it has certainly proved its potential to revolutionise the maritime industry. How we implement strategies and harness this robust digital platform will greatly impact the complex maritime ecosystem through the exchange of data in real time and creating a competitive maritime business.

The Blockchain for Maritime Decisionmakers (BMD) Program in Singapore is designed for decision-makers within the extended value chain of the maritime industry (e.g. shipowners, shipmanagers, classification societies, manning agents, charterers, port authorities, regulators, logistics & supply chain etc.) who are responsible for the future business growth. Conducted by leading faculty members and Maritime industry experts, the BMD programme provides a firm foundation for understanding the key concepts behind blockchain, evaluating the usage of blockchain in your maritime business, developing strategies for successful blockchain implementation and more.
