      Maritime transport administration has always been interesting for me.

Since I did my training last summer in this industry, this interest almost

transformed to a passion. I worked three complete months at CP Ships

Logistics in Montreal. The experience I lived help me a lot now at school and

it is an advantage I have on many of my friends in the logistics program.

When I knew that we should have to write an essay on a subjet relative to

our concentration, it was clear for me that I was going to do it about

containerisation. It is also interesting to see that this subject attracts

people from every concentration in our school. In order to be different than

the others, I decided to look at the industry from a logistician point of view

and at a smaller scale than the World one. I will also direct myself to talk as

much as possible about the intermodal face of containerisation. So my essay

will be developed this way : first, I will do a brief overview of the Port of

Montreal, then I will concentrate on the company where I did my training, CP

Ships. Finally, I will explain a couple of concepts and daily operations in this

industry’s administration. I hope that this essay will be clear, informative

and that I will bring by it new knowledge to people interested by

containerisation.
