Ship management & logistics


This course covers the interrelationship between all modes of transport used in International trade. However students should note that because 90% of all international cargo transport includes a sea movement leg the main thrust of this syllabus is on intermodal transport and logistics involving maritime transport.


Logistics management is the part of supply chain management that plans, implements, and controls the efficient, effective forward, and reverses flow and storage of goods, services, and related information between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet customer’s requirements. The complexity of logistics can be modeled, analyzed, visualized, and optimized by dedicated simulation software. The minimization of the use of resources is a common motivation in all logistics fields; you will have the chance to have a general idea about this and more in this training course.
