This first module provides an initial thorough introduction to the course, the role of ports and terminals within the global maritime supply chain, including the commodities and volumes transported, trade routes, areas of production and consumption, along with issues of globalisation and the management of the many and varied stakeholders involved in ports and terminals operations.
Developing knowledge gained in Module One, this module further examines the role of the port and terminal, the relationship between the port authority and a terminal operator, related legal obligations, ownership and operating structures and the pricing of port services.
Key issues in the operations of the various terminal types are explored, along with an investigation of the various terminal operators and the benchmarking of terminals.
The Health & Safety (H&S) of personnel, the security of the terminal and the protection of the environment are all key responsibilities of a terminal manager. The module provides an understanding of these issues and considers the related management systems.
The workforce is at the heart of a successful terminal. Here the careful management of people, training needs, skills mix and performance are addressed.
The themes of business strategy, marketing, business development and sales, pricing and customer service, which are all key elements for successful terminal management are considered.
A successful terminal needs to be operating efficiently and also profitably. Any manager needs to have an understanding of the economics related to the management and operations of the terminal, including budgeting and the financial implications of operational decisions. This module provides an understanding of the key financial appreciation required.
Many people work in terminals and the terminal is only a success if they work together. This module considers issues of self-development, leadership and management, forming and working in an effective team, motivating people and developing high performance.
This module considers the legal framework in which terminals operate, looking at the range of complex legislation which surrounds the operation of a terminal. The legal
status of a terminal and related responsibilities are investigated, along with the regulation of the vessel calling at the terminals, before concluding with an appreciation of the maritime conventions that apply to ports and terminals.
Addresses the process of engaging in a contract with shipping lines and/or cargo owners, which is key to the successful and profitable operation of the terminal.
Terminals never stand still and are constantly adjusting their design, developing quay or yard areas, acquiring new equipment or implementing new systems, or refurbishing existing areas. Any major activity requires careful management and this module investigates the practices and principles of managing a project.
