Some things remain the same no matter where shipping is studied. If you wish you can always visit my website, click on the required icon and send a request for training to me.

The Institute educates freshers as well as people already working in the maritime logistics industry on a range of logistics subjects through basic and advanced level courses. At the moment it is a brick and mortar training centre located in Mumbai, but work is on to teach the subjects online.
