Career in Port Management

Port Management

Managing ports today is a highly complex business and depends on the combination of material handling, road transport, storage, safeship operations, health and safety. The core modules of port management are designed to train aspiring managers in the essential management skills required today for meeting the challenges of the ever-growing sea freight market. Large ports need to deal with a number of disparate activities like the movement, loading and unloading of ships, containers and other cargo, customs activities as well as human resources. Anchorage, channels, lighters, tugs, berths, the warehouse and other storage spaces have to be allocated. The efficient management of a port involves managing these activities and resources, managing the flow of money between the agents providing and using these resources and updating all management-related information.
