Educational visit to the USA – Port Authority of New York & New Jersey
The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey hosted a group of students and faculty members of the MSc in Shipping, University of Piraeus graduate program at their offices in Port Newark/Elizabeth. Excellent presentations and discussions with Ms. Amanda Valdes, Manager of Business Development & Industry Relations and Ms. Nicol Polidoro, Regional Account Manager, Northeast. Our group had a guided tour of the Port complex and a site visit of Maher Terminal and the Shipping Association of New York & New Jersey’s (NYSA) Training Center, where we had the opportunity to see the training simulators used by NYSA, similar to the simulators recently acquired by our Quantitative Analysis in Shipping Laboratory at the University of Piraeus. Special thanks to the Director and Officers of the Port Department for hosting members of our program and for making this visit a memorable learning experience!
