How would Google manage a container terminal?

A presentation by the Octopi Team at TOC Americas in Cancun, Mexico.

TOC Americas 2016

October 13TH at 11:45 AM, 2016 | Cancun ICC, Cancun, Mexico

Our team was excited to present at TOC Americas in October of 2016. In our talk, we looked at the core principles used by Google to build an innovative and successful company and see how these strategies can be applied to managing a container terminal.

The world of business has changed dramatically over the last few years. Some companies, like Google, have done really well during these chaotic times while others have not fared so well. What can you learn from these successful companies? How can you prepare your terminal operations to be ready for what the future may bring?
