Port Transit-Corridor, Policy & Transhipment Logistics Management Course

Port Transit-Transport and Transhipment Logistics Management Course

Access to world market through ports has increasingly become a determinant to economic growth in some landlocked countries and port countries of the world. Port transit-corridor logistics is now an important element of the international trade supply chains. Not only will ports benefit from efficient transit-transport and transhipment logistics management but some will advance to become regional hubs by perfecting in transit-transport logistics. The complexity in transit-transport and transhipment logistics management demands highly skilled manpower. This is why this programme is carefully put together by academics, ministerial policymakers, port operators, consultants and stakeholders to exploit the efficiency within.


The broad aim of this skill-enhancement packed programme is to promote efficient port transit-transport and transhipment logistics management in a challenging and dynamic environment. Ports handling goods destined to other countries must meet the acceptable level of efficiency it requires. This will constrain both the facilities and manpower of the port to a certain extent that the capacity can no longer cope unless strategically and tactically managed. It is on this platform this programme was developed hence the following objectives.


  1. To enhance the knowledge of participants on the growing regulatory complexities in the   management of port transit-transport and logistics management interface.
  2. To enable participants acquire up-to-date skills in the strategic management of the interface    of port transit-transport and transhipment logistics whilst understanding the policy issues and    application in transit-corridor frontier trade operations.
  3. To equip participants with the multi-skills needed in managing such complex logistics   operations.
