On a snowy afternoon on Monday 10 December, two representatives from the Digital and IT Office (DIO) landed in Tallinn, Estonia, to present the future vision for the DIO and their respective systems.
Ian Cowie, Phoenix Product Owner, and Bart van Rosmalen, EDI Product Owner, both first-time visitors to Estonia, spent two full days on location in Tallinn. During their visit, they engaged with local staff to listen to the concerns and issues being faced, enjoyed an extensive tour of the terminal to view cargo arriving and how the check-in staff interacted with the system in place, and watched a vessel being loaded.
Ian Cowie says: “The purpose of the visit was to interact with some key stakeholders, and to provide an educational awareness update on the DIO, and what we hope to deliver to this location and to all locations in Q1, and further into 2019.”
Dmitri Shabanov, Operations General Manager in Tallinn, says: “It was great to welcome our colleagues from the DIO, to listen to their vision, and to show them our operation and share our thoughts and ideas too. We are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for us with digitalisation.”
“We would like to thank Dmitri, Ave Lomp and Markus Martsepp for their hospitality during our visit,” say Ian and Bart.
