About the Course

This course will provide an introduction to the maritime industry, including an overview of a ship’s commercial, logistical, economic and trade components.

The nature of international shipping requires the services of many parties and organisations, and this course addresses how many of these contribute to the provision of a reliable and cost effective shipping and logistics solution.

Basic obligations incurred under various contracts of carriage are explained, along with marine insurance cover, how it’s governed and has developed its own unique features through its own Act of Parliament at the national level whilst IMO looks after the enforcement in the global arena.

The shipping industry is global in nature and subject to many international controls, which can cause delay and cost to the ship and cargo – the nature of these controls are examined. Finally, the course provides an overview of how the supply/ demand equations are increasingly impacted by CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) principles, which concern obligations towards the environment, marine pollution, sustainability and security.
