This port management program is a five day course designed to provide participants with a professional education opportunity related to the operations of ports, vessels, marine terminals and the related transportation system. The program gives participants tools and knowledge to make their organization more effective and has drawn the attention of a broad cross section of executives from all over North America.

The CPE Certified Port Executive Program creates a new learning pathway for professionals in the port world.  Course topics include an overview of the worldwide intermodal transportation system; port and terminal operations; cargo management; safety and security; emergency planning and response; public and media relations; environmental management; and strategic, master, and business planning.  

Company President Ralston MacDonnell congratulated the graduates by saying, “It is our intention to maintain a program that will allow our graduates to have a positive impact on the development of the port and marine transportation system.”

MacDonnell has trained more than 10,000 port employees throughout North America in maritime and port security, and hosts annual conferences to provide a gathering space and forum for sharing best practices in operations.
