Mr. Niehage shared with the participants updates on the activities, fleet and organisational structure of Hapag-Lloyd. Meanwhile, C/Off Setubal and Chief Electrician Mendoza gave an overview on Hapag-Lloyd cadet training and shared their experiences.

After which, Marlow Navigation’s Training Director, Joern Clodius reflected on the development of the successful cooperation between Hapag-Lloyd and Marlow Navigation since its commencement in 2009. Furthermore, safety relevant topics were introduced and discussed, whilst the importance of both mental and physical health was highlighted.

Correct information relay and respective techniques were subject of a workshop.

"We very much appreciate such opportunities being provided by our customers, as information collected helps us to improve our services."

The conference was rounded up by an enjoyable dinner party.
