concepts in international trade and customs regulations are addressed. An
overview about incoterms, documents and payment procedures used in
international (maritime) transport conclude the first part.

Part 2: Maritime Logistics: International maritime transport is the backbone of
globalisation. This part of the module will deliver an overview of the basic
elements of international maritime transport. It focuses on the major shipping

supply management. A deeper understanding of the structure of liner container
