Meet the Director

Hendrik LohseI am glad to welcome our future trainees who will join the 8,000 professionals from over 144 countries who have attended our training programmes and seminars over the last 30 years.

Our customer-focused approach and the support we receive from major global operators guarantee trainees will acquire those valuable competencies and skills that bring genuine added-value to their current educational backgrounds and professional experiences.

Our Institut Portuaire d'Enseignement et de Recherche du Havre (IPER) has always enjoyed a reputation for relevance and pro-active adaptation to the evolutions in the fast changing world of Logistics, Transports and Port Management Industries.

We benefit from our location in the Port City of Le Havre and its world-class Port 2000 Container facilities, and the many distribution platforms and logistics service companies that operate in this exceptional environment. IPER is sponsored by the French State and international agencies such as IMO, WCO or ILO for its widely acknowledged expertise in training for the global economy. IPER also enjoys a long-standing partnership with the Grand Port Maritime du Havre.

IPER is an Institute of Ecole de Management de Normandie (Le Havre, Deauville and Caen). It can thus draw on significant Faculty resources and benefit from the Business School’s wide network of partner companies and universities at home and abroad.

The IPER Team looks forward to welcoming you in Le Havre.

Hendrik Lohse
IPER Director
