Transport of goods by sea has always played a vital role in the global economy and will continue to be of great importance due to ever increasing globalisation and liberalisation of markets. The growth of seaborne trade has also had its impact on ports as they are the link between the sea and land. Globalization emphasises the need for efficiency and cost reduction in the transport chain, including port operations.
Containerisation has had huge impact in world trade and contributed to a more effective and efficient world of transport, where labour cost have shifted and economies have thrived in “unexpected” places. Containerisation couldn’t have such a big impact without the development of container terminals being the node connecting land and sea.
Today’s terminals are mega structures including huge investments, ensuring efficient operations and minimize ship’s turn-around time. These investments need to be profitable, without compromising on the health and safety for the port workers and the surroundings. How can you make a terminal effective and efficient? What tactical improvements can be made to connect to the strategy of the terminal operator?
A lot of factors are involved to be successful in this matter. You can make a difference if you have a deeper understanding of today’s container terminals, how they are managed and what steps to take to maintain the success. A small investment in time of 30 hours will get you to the insights needed to be part of that success. A small step to take for maximum impact. Will your name be on our next certificate?
