A group of masters students visited Shoreham Port to meet the team and be shown around key areas.

Leading the tour for the Southampton Solent University group was the Port’s director of engineering Tony Parker.

Tony joined the Port in 2006 and has nearly 40 years’ experience in the design, implementation and management of port and harbour facilities, coast protection and waterside development and was the ideal tour guide for the students studying maritime operations and logistics.

Tony said: “As a trust port, Shoreham is here for the benefit of all our stakeholders – not only importers and exporters but also our local communities, the thousands of people whose jobs are created here and the very many businesses and farmers whose livelihoods depend on the goods passing through the Port.

“If their visit has given the students just a little extra insight into the issues to be faced in their future careers then the visit will have been well worth-while.”
