Starting in Bremen-Walle at the “Getreideverkehrsanlage” of the company J. MÜLLER a wonderful walk had been leading the students of the International Degree Programme in Shipping and Chartering (ISSC) to interesting and astonishing places linking Bremen with the shipping industry.
Maritime insights had been provided all along the way.
J. MÜLLER offers state‐of‐the‐art infrastructure at its two sites in Brake and Bremen: a trimodal traffic connection that facilitates an optimal transport solution at any time. A wide range of equipment for unloading diverse kinds of goods, e.g. pneumatic lifters, grippers or heavy duty cranes. Expansive premises for interim storage and pre‐assembly as well as a wide range of services are available.
In this year’s Maritime Walk and Talk ISCC students organized a meeting with responsible people from the world's largest container shipping line MSC with the chance to get first hand industry-insights into their strategy and their day-to-day business.
Responsible for the organisation of the ISSC Walk and Talk is Dr. Iven Krämer. Since 2021 he is an honorary professor at the Hochschule (HSB) teaching "Blue Sciences“ and "Maritime Research“ modules in the International Degree Programme in Shipping and Chartering (ISSC).
As an export-oriented nation, Germany is particularly interested in ensuring a supply of graduates with expertise in the maritime transport sector. The primary and secondary maritime economy is characterised by strong growth, which translates into sustainable demand on the maritime labour market (incl. the insurance and transport industry).

Students of the programme develop teamworking and all-rounder qualities that prepare them for management tasks in different areas.
