At the 13th annual European Oil Storage conference in Amsterdam, downstream IT company Implico and tank terminal cloud technology specialist, Brainum, will give an outlook on an interconnected downstream future.
Thomas Fahland, Head of Solution Management at Implico, and Martin Keulemans, Managing Director of Brainum, will present a speech on 22 January 2020 at the conference titled ‘Supply Chain United – your digital, automated and connected platform.’
Implico and Brainum merged in December 2019, combining their industry expertise and innovation programs. Together, the companies aspire to expand and strengthen their position in the digitalisation of the oil and gas sector. They work towards a connected downstream supply chain, enabling all-new services, technologies and partnerships. The key to achieve this is an architecture of shared cloud solutions and easy-to-use web services. This enables efficient business processes and high-value cooperation along the supply chain. On stage, Fahland and Keulemans will introduce the new concept of the ‘Supply Chain United,’ laying out the potential it bears and the impact it will have. One vital element which the two speakers will introduce is a fully cloud-based terminal management and automation system for liquid bulk terminals – a first in the industry.
Fahland explains: “The downstream industry develops rapidly. To use its momentum to their advantage, oil companies must be agile, open-minded and brave. They must embrace the idea of close collaboration along the entire supply chain, lifting synergies and forming partnerships for mutual gain. The cross-company ‘Supply Chain United’ will provide the optimal environment for this.”
Keulemans continues: “For Implico and Brainum, the Annual European Oil Storage conference is the place to be […] the event gives provides an ideal stage to introduce the ‘Supply Chain United’ to high-ranking industry professionals. The companies look forward to showing them the many benefits that arise from a sector-wide infrastructure of specialised web services and ready-to-use cloud solutions.”
The 13th Annual European Oil Storage conference takes place at the Hilton Amsterdam on 22 – 23 January 2020.
