EPDC on Container Terminal Performance and Planning
December 11, 2014 - 11:02am

Senior professionals from the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) took part in a customized Executive Professional Development Course delivered at WMU from 1-5 December. The course was entitled Container Terminal Performance and Planning with a Simulation Technique and was led by Professor Daniel Moon.

The course introduced participants to the concept of port logistics, including implications in terms of the total transport chain, and involved a computer-based simulation session. Container terminals were the topic of focus with emphasis on the importance of Proper Container Terminal Capacity (PCTC) for both a port and its customers.

WMU Research Associate, Aditi Kataria, made a presentation about the Modular Enhanced Training Programme for European Maritime Security Personnel (METPROM) project in which WMU is a research partner. The 24-month-project is intended to develop and transfer innovations for maritime security training and simulation based modules to fill security gaps in increasingly complex operational activities in ports. WMU is involved in all aspects of the METPROM project and is the leader of the work package "Development of Innovative Training Environment Concept" that focuses on analysis of existing training materials and consolidation of findings to design and develop training module contents.
