Curriculum Highlights

Ship Brokering

Shipbroking is a financial service, which forms part of the global shipping industry. Shipbrokers are specialist intermediaries/negotiators (i.e. brokers) between shipowners and charterers who use ships to transport cargo, or between buyers and sellers of vessels.

Ship Chartering

Chartering is an activity within the shipping industry whereby a shipowner hires out the use of his/her vessel to a charterer.

Port Agency Operations

The agent is like a control tower for a ship’s port call, co-ordinating local scheduling and logistics with the key players — the owner, charterer, shipper, receiver, terminal, and, of course, the ship.
