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. The need for efficiency and cost reduction in the transport chain is constantly required, including dry bulk terminal operations.
Raw materials need to be transported to locations all over the world for processing, leading to end products or energy. Often, the dry bulk is processed in other countries and inland. Although dry bulk commodities can be seen as (relatively) low value, the end product or process is not. Storage and transportation have a great impact on the value and quality of the product. How do you increase the terminal throughput, what are the developments of handling equipment, and how to handle storage?
With insights into the management of a dry bulk terminal, you can have an impact on reducing demurrage and transportation penalties. It will take 30 hours to complete your insights with a certificate that has value in the commodity transport chain.
