Get ready to be inspired by the incredible journey of Andrew McKeown, CEO at LogChain, as he shared his story on the Asia Tech Podcast. Andrew's passion for logistics and supply chain shines through as he recounts his unconventional entry into the industry. From working in civil engineering to becoming a specialist in chemical logistics, Andrew's career has taken him to different parts of the world, including living in shipping containers in Iraq and working in Zambia and the DRC.

Some of the topics that Andrew covered:

  • A focus on Change Management with a clearly identified “Why”
  • Blockchain in the context of LogChain and why data immutability for Logistics is so important
  • How digital transformation is NOT about moving documentation online, but is about harnessing the power of data
  • The need for logisticians to embrace change, be flexible, and cut through obstacles
