You will learn how to solve a shortage or a surplus of shipping capacity in a concrete situation, for example. Next to this there will be a module about the technical and operational aspects of sea transport like Ship Operations and Management, Registration & Classification, the handling of cargo on board ships and maintenance. Next to Maritime Transport there will be courses related to Port Management, Terminal Management and Hinterland Transportation. To support all this there will be trips to the Ports of Hamburg and Antwerp and also various visits to the port of Rotterdam, including Maasvlakte II. People working in this field of expertise are invited to give guest lectures.
As a separate, more technical topic, logistics support of (advanced) capital goods or assets will be addressed in courses like Terminal Management and Operations and Service Management. The assumption here is that logistics is important or even crucial in keeping assets like ships, port equipment and IT hardware in top condition.
