3. Course contents *

Maritime transport is an essential link in many a global supply chain. At any given moment within a given chain, there are trade-offs to be made with other links, including in relation to the choice of port and transhipment as well as hinterland services. This course provides an in-depth view into the management of maritime supply chains. It also examines how such supply chains can be affected by exogenous trends and events, such as structural changes in international trade, evolutions in the global fleet, and national and supranational maritime policymaking.
