Shipping and Freight courses
One of the reasons that I started this blog was to assist newcomers to the industry learn and know more about the industry and also for people already in the industry to share their inputs, knowledge and engage in discussions..
Many people from around the world have sent me requests through email and through the question form in the side bar of the blog, and more often than not, I receive below question..
“I would like to improve my knowledge in shipping, freight, logistics and supply chain. What course can you recommend“..
For this question I thought to take the assistance of all my readers.. So help me help those who are in need of educational courses to get a qualification in shipping, freight, logistics and supply chain..
Please share your thoughts on which shipping and freight courses you would recommend to those interested in studying about Shipping, Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain..
There are plenty of resources out there. However my top 3 recommendations are as follows:
1. Baltic Exchange Academy
2. Orion Training EU
3. Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers
Hope this helps.
Thanks for your recommendations George..

Thank you for the update Luke..
On the ICC page, one could find, among others, a very useful online training course on the Incoterms 2010 rules:
It is always best to approach a training provider in the area where you live as there are at times small variations in procedures followed by the industry in the different countries. Some things remain the same no matter where shipping is studied. If you wish you can always visit my website, click on the required icon and send a request for training to me. Web address is http://www.cargoconsult.co.za. We have trained cargo insurance internationally plus other master classes up in Africa, we being a fully accredited training provider.
Best to always choose an accredited training provider and then you will know you are getting the best to offer.

I am a retired Additional Head of Operations Department of Mumbai Port. After retirement I have set up a training establishment called Spring Tide Institute of Logistics Training or STILT. The Institute educates freshers as well as people already working in the maritime logistics industry on a range of logistics subjects through basic and advanced level courses. At the moment it is a brick and mortar training centre located in Mumbai, but work is on to teach the subjects online. For more information interested candidates can look into the website http://www.stilt.co.in or contact me on 9920696193 or firstname.lastname@example.org
