On 20 March, the inauguration of WMU’s MSc in International Transport and Logistics (ITL) Class of 2018 took place at Shanghai Maritime University's (SMU) Dongming Campus in Shanghai, China.

Professor Shuo Ma, WMU Vice President (International) and Professor Xin Shi, SMU Vice President, delivered welcome messages and it was announced that two new sponsorships for this class have been received from two Shanghai-based companies.

The ITL programme was established in 2005 in collaboration with SMU to meet the maritime industry’s demand for high-level specialized maritime professionals in China. Maritime transport is an integral part of the globalized logistics chain and the ITL programme educates high-level professionals with management, analytical and practical skills to meet the challenges of today’s complex maritime industry. The intensive, 15-month programme begins each April and to date there are 377 graduates from the programme.
