Course title: OPEN REGISTRATION – 13th ed. PORT SERVICES
Date: From 8 to 25 November
Timetable: No fixed schedule because it is on-line
Historically, ports have played a key role in trade and the geographical expansion of populations, contributing to the growth and the military and commercial dominance of the cultures that developed them.
Nowadays, commercial ports act as hubs for logistics chains with a maritime transport section, enabling the modal exchange of goods and people between ships and modes of ground transport: railways and trucks. As part of their mission, ports provide shelter and protection to ships as well as the exchange of goods and passage—the reason for their existence in the past—but as a consequence of developments in international trade and transport, they now also provide others services such as handling, storage, administrative control, logistics, etc.
The aim of this course is to understand what port services involve and how they are managed, and their importance not only in port activities but also in supply chains that include a maritime transport section.
The overall aim is then divided into the following specific aims:
- Introduce the basic principles of port management
- Identify the main port clients and port agents that make up the Port Community
- Understand what port services are and how they are categorized
- Understand how port services are managed
- Acquire a general overview of the influence of port fees in port costs
Each of these aims is tackled as a separate topic. The aim in question is set out at the start of each topic.
