Professor Anthony Beresford is Programme Director for the MSc International Transport. He is also overall Director for the suite of Masters Programmes within the Logistics and Operations Management Section.

Anthony has travelled widely in an advisory capacity within the ports and transport fields in Europe, Asia and North America. Early in his career he co-authored Lloyd’s Maritime Atlas of World’s Ports and Shipping Places, 15th and 16th Editions (1986 & 1989). The 1989 Edition formed the blueprint for all subsequent editions, and the Atlas is recognised as the Standard Work in its field.

His work with the United Nations has been widely recognised and has led to a large number of academic publications as well as important outreach activities.

Anthony has presented papers at the highest level including, for example, his contribution to The House of Commons Report on UK Ports produced through the Welsh Affairs Committee, 2009. In 2012 he was Keynote Speaker at the second African Logistics Conference in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.
