This highly participative training course is focused on the transport system, a complex large-scale socio-technical system which is locked in around a set of prevailing beliefs and technologies. The future of transportation is changing on a daily basis and we have witnessed several examples where incidents have affected the overall supply chain stability. The course explains how the transportation systems can be transformed into the future developments and optimized to facilitate maximum economic and physical throughput growth.

The training course also addresses a growing focus to reduce or eliminate the negative side effects of current transport systems, in terms of proposed policies for transport system design and sustainability.

The delegates will be able to understand and compare international approaches to transport planning and management and develop appreciation of the contribution of different roles in the delivery of transport sector implementations, as well as multimodality of the future transportation systems.

This ETC training course will highlight:

  • Relationships involved in transport systems
  • Future opportunities and challenges for transportation systems
  • Best ways for interventions in managing transport systems
  • Ways of upgrading the existing systems
  • Means of learning from the experiences of others in developing the systems

By the end of this training course, participants will learn to:

  • Identify and optimize interactions of transport system with other sectors
  • Improve delivery of transport sector
  • Recognize trends in the transportation sector
  • Utilize the development of international corridors
  • Compare different international transportation related projects

Participants to this training course will receive a thorough training on the subjects covered by the seminar outline with the Tutor utilising a variety of proven adult learning teaching and facilitation techniques. Seminar methodology include theoretical deliberations, worked examples and videos of already implemented systems.

Organizations will greatly benefit from the knowledge acquired by their employees considering that we are going into the era of knowledge economy.

Main impacts on organizations would be expected within:

  • Ability to improve on their decision-making processes
  • Acquiring the experiences from different countries and regions
  • Comparison of their work practices with other relevant authorities
  • Use of optimization measures presented within the course
  • Adequate fiscal policies for the transportation systems
  • Reduced time to delivery

Professional growth within the knowledge economy is one of the main assets, as the development of technologies has transformed the data into the new oil, now the knowledge would be considered as the new oil.

The delegates will greatly benefit from:

  • Understanding future trends and challenges in the transportation sector
  • Knowledge of interconnectivity within the transportation sector
  • Ability to optimize the transportation systems planning
  • Realize the benefits and risks from international approaches to transport planning and management
  • Acquiring the knowledge on contribution of different roles in the delivery of transport sector
  • Experience about work in inter-disciplinary teams
