PLA provided another well-evaluated course on port management & development, in Portugal (Setúbal and Sines) in November 2015. During one week, PLA team (led by its principal consultant Peter de Langen) provided the course on Port Management & Development, organised by the Portuguese Ports Association, Port of Setubal, Port of Sines and Lisbon University Economics & Management School, together with Ports & Logistics Advisory to participants who came from several Portuguese port authorities and other port related companies.
The course brought to the attendants the opportunity to get deeper knowledge about port management & development. Participants applied new insights and tools during several workshops. Furthermore, the participation of experts with deep insights in the Portuguese ports industry, such as Vítor Caldeirinha –the president of the Port Authority of Setúbal and Sesimbra- and Joao Franco –the president of the Port Authority of Sines- was highly valued by the participants. Finally the participants had a tour around the Ports of Setúbal and Sines.
