Lego Game to train Shipping Industry

 09 Apr 2015 11.11am

LinerGame, founded in 2014, has developed a table-top simulation game using container vessels made from LEGO bricks. The simulation game allows for training of people new to the industry, as well as advanced simulation of shipping processes for experienced liner executives.

Copenhagen-based LinerGame has expanded its local presence in Europe and South East Asia through newly established agencies in France and Singapore.

The agencies will be headed by Charles Moret in France and Andy Lane in Singapore. Both are highly experienced liner shipping executives, having been in the industry more than 40 years combined.

Recently the LinerGame has been adopted by Chalmers University in Gothenburg as part of a curriculum in Shipping and Marine Technology, and discussions are ongoing with other maritime educational institutions.

Lars Jensen, director and co-founder of LinerGame states that: “The expansion will allow LinerGame to more easily establish local training and teambuilding sessions for both small and large shipping companies outside of Denmark, and we are planning to establish additional agencies going forward.”
