Finding the solutions
24-year old Ospina is from Colombia, where she studied industrial and environmental engineering. She moved to Panama to pursue a career in finance, but soon realised she was more suited to the challenges of the logistics industry.
“I really enjoy devising solutions to problems. Thatʼs why logistics appealed to me – thereʼs always a new way to optimise processes,” she says.
The D&D app idea was seized upon by the IT department who immediately set to work developing it, and just five weeks later Damcoʼs very first app – a simple tool that automatically calculates D&D costs based on contractual information – was born.
Ospina flew to Charlotte in the US to meet the developers and present the product to customers, who loved the idea. The app will now be released globally to the market, securing Damcoʼs position as a digital frontrunner in the logistics industry and potentially saving millions in D&D costs every year.
“Technological advances are driving huge changes in the way we do business, so this is an exciting industry to be in right now,” says Ospina.
