About Ship Planners
This course has been designed to provide the Ship Planner, both the Terminal planner and Line planner, with the theoretical and practical knowledge required to plan the cargo stowage on a container vessel.
The role of the ship planner is to reduce the ship's port duration by optimising container stowage and terminal efficiency, as well as keeping restows to a minimum, thereby reducing operational costs. The planner will also assist the ship's staff in keeping the vessel within acceptable stability limits and minimising hull stresses. The need for meticulous planning and communication by experts is paramount, given the complexity of loading a large vessel for a multi port discharge, with several thousand containers of varying weights and dimensions, plus the requirement to segregate dangerous cargoes, while meeting all port and international regulations.
This course provides both the experienced and not so experienced ship planner with the industry background and knowledge to efficiently carry out their duties.
The course covers terminal arrangements, container ship knowledge, rules and regulations, ship’s stability, hull stresses, planning procedures, handling and stowage of dangerous cargo, loading and securing of non containerised cargo and container securing equipment.
