The Apprentice School SNAME Student Section August Meeting
On August 16th, Scott Schubart, Port Manager for Norton Lilly International in Norfolk, Virginia came to The Apprentice School to discuss with the students about his role in the shipping industry. Students learned from Mr. Schubart about the different things a shipping agents are responsible for. Some examples that the students were unaware they were responsible for ranged from scheduling doctors’ appointments for crew members to dealing with customs paperwork. Mr. Schubart had many interesting stories from his 40 year experience working with Norton Lilly and Anders Williams Ship Agency that gave our student section a better understanding of what Port Managers do. This presentation gave the student section a broader view of what the marine industry is all about.
