The STS provides a comprehensive training program on a wide range of ship sizes and various load types, enabling port operators to master the complex skills required for the highest level of operations. This translates to fewer safety incidents, faster ship turnaround time, and optimal equipment utilization. The program also ensures that real equipment is not interrupted for training purposes and new operators are trained to use the equipment effectively, safely, and efficiently.

The STS training pack contributes to a more sustainable workforce because it doesn’t compete for training time on the real equipment, and the operators can learn in a safe environment.
