Maritime Logistics and Supply Chain Management

Logistics activities in the maritime transport sector

The aim of this e-course about Maritime Logistics & Supply Chain Management is to describe the convergence of maritime transport and logistics, previously considered as two distinct subject areas. This convergence has resulted in the formation of a new field of study called Maritime Logistics and Supply Chain Management.
With the help of a literature review and different real case examples, the online-course will describe the importance of logistics activities in the maritime transport sector. You will also discuss how maritime transport operators are extending their services to cope with the demand for efficient maritime supply chains from their customers.

This e-courses will run completely online and can be used in a flexible way. You can follow your own learning tempo, intenseness and style and you can therefore flexibly integrate this course into your individual daily schedule. Exercises and quizzes can be completed online within the context of the course and are evaluated on the spot.

After having completed the course, you are able to…

  • understand the growing need of logistic activities within the maritime sector.
  • explain the main concepts of logistics and maritime transport as two different disciplines.
  • demonstrate the need and emergence of “maritime logistics”.
  • describe new responsibilities and roles of maritime transport operators to provide an efficient maritime value chain.
