About 'World of Shipping Portugal'
World of Shipping Portugal is a privately owned web-based initiative established in 2018 by Ana Casaca, its Founder and Owner. We are involved in Maritime Training and Research, although occasionally, we carry out Technical Translations.
Our Vision
"A Better Maritime Industry Day After Day"
Our Mission
"To Develop Creative Thinkers to Support the Evolutionary Path of the Shipping Industry"
Our Values
"We are Committed and Value Honesty, Integrity, Excellence, and Equality of Opportunities"
Our Maritime Training targets the market needs since the industry needs knowledgeable professionals. It is designed to enhance the competencies of maritime industry professionals in which the theoretical concepts are mixed with practical work and industry examples, giving Participants a broad but insightful perspective of the maritime transport activity. The Training Programme covers the areas of Distribution Channels, Logistics and Supply Chain, and Maritime Economics. Courses within each area cover different topics, and their contents are aligned with industry trends. Training is delivered either online or in-class. While online class training provides an opportunity to manage time more efficiently where busy professionals fit their training needs around their lifestyle and work schedule, in-class training offers the opportunity to establish good human relationships, a feature from which the maritime industry has benefitted.
Our Maritime Research is split into three sections. The first one concerns the research work carried out by Ana Casaca; here, website visitors can find all her work. The second section concerns the surveys she carries out to support her research work. Finally, the third section shows the Research Events she has been organising within and outside the scope of the ‘World of Shipping Portugal’ initiative. These Research Events are meant to target the Research Community and Industry Practitioners. We firmly believe that research must have a purpose. We want our Research Events to be meeting points which identify new research areas worth investigating. Well-elaborated research and development activities help the Shipping Industry grow and become more sustainable in the long term. The Shipping Industry is facing tremendous challenges, including a lack of employees, new environmental regulations, security risks and rising costs. Out of these challenges, shipping decarbonisation is expected to cause a revolution in how ships operate. Shipping companies are forced to decide which alternative fuels best suit their operations, given their current availability constraints. All these challenges are sure to open the scope for maritime logistics improvements.
While Translation is not the primary focus of our work, we carry it out occasionally as long as it is within the scope of the Maritime industry. For further information about our Technical Translation services, clik here.
These Resources are classified under 5 broad categories: 1) Training Resources (training related information); 2) Research Resources (research-related information and maritime information and data); 3) Reading Resources (namely, books, journals, magazines & newspapers, other publications); 4) Relevant Organisations in Shipping (such as political-related organisations, related economic organisations, environmental-related organisations, logistics & transport related organisations); and finally, 5) Maritime Organisations.
We Welcome You to Discover the Amazing World of the Shipping Industry!
Take care, Stay safe, Be well!
Greetings from Lisbon
