A container’s voyage

Course Access: Lifetime
Course Overview

In this e-Learning module, we look at standard shipping containers and their transport. Using a fictive but realistic voyage of a container, we will present information related to containers and look in quite some details at each step of its overseas transport.

The total run time is cca. 45 min and is split into two presentation parts, followed by an interactive part with some questions.
The expected total seat time should be approximatively 70 min.

Following this course, the student should:

  • understand what standard shipping containers are,
  • know the differences between the main types of containers and how to identify them using ISO codes,
  • be aware of key points related to containers and their transport,
  • be comfortable when exchanging with shippers, shipping lines, forwarders and other parties when working with shipping containers.
