I’m excited to share the latest episode of the Digital Supply Chain podcast with you. This week, I had the pleasure of chatting with Ami Daniel, the co-founder and CEO of Windward, a company that provides maritime data and analytics to the supply chain industry.
During the episode, Ami shared some fascinating insights into how the company’s technology is being used to help various stakeholders in the supply chain ecosystem, from regulators to shippers to freight forwarders. We discussed Windward’s journey as a company, their plans for the future, and the challenges they’ve faced along the way.
One of the main topics we explored was the importance of data in the supply chain industry. Ami explained how Windward’s data is being used to increase transparency, reduce friction, and drive efficiency in the shipping industry. We also talked about the challenges of working with data at such a large scale and how Windward is using AI and machine learning to make sense of the vast amounts of information they collect.
Another interesting area we delved into was the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the supply chain industry. Ami shared his perspective on how the pandemic has accelerated the adoption of technology in the industry, as well as the challenges it has posed to various stakeholders in the ecosystem.
Ami also shared how data can be used to tackle illegal fishing and labor abuse in the global shipping industry, as well as with compliance with the Jones Act.
