Spire Maritime has launched a new podcast – Maritime Means – hosted by logistics journalist Blythe Brumleve. They hope it will grow the community of digital innovators in the shipping industry.
In the first episode, which is available to download now, Blythe talks with Nidhi Gupta, the co-founder of Portcast, a logistics technology start-up in Singapore backed by leading VCs, which uses machine learning and real-time external data to make global supply chains dynamic and predictive. Today, Nidhi guides entrepreneurs in learning to utilize AI to make logistics more effective and data-driven.
In the second episode – also available now – Blythe interviews Salvatore Mercogliano, a Maritime historian, former merchant mariner, gCaptain contributor and host of the popular YouTube channel “What’s Going on in Shipping”. Sal talks about the influence of sea power on history, the life of a merchant mariner during Covid, and the role and history of containers in our global supply chain.
The latest episode features Christopher Aversano, product manager for Q88 (now Veson Nautical), ex-tanker broker, and former President of the Connecticut Maritime Association. Chris speaks to the adoption of technology in the shipping industry, data/cybersecurity, the future of sustainability, and the need for recruiting more diversity.
