37 international students from the EAE Business School of Barcelona, (studying the Master of Supply Chain Management) have participated in another edition of the Motorways of the Sea Training (MOST) Intermodality course. Organized by the Escola Europea de Short Sea Shipping (2E3S), the course took place from the 2nd to the 4th of November in Barcelona.
Sponsored by the 2E3S, Grimaldi Lines, the Port of Barcelona and the EAE Business School, the training took the students on board of a Ro-Pax vessel to present intermodal logistics, the motorways of the sea, and the operational aspects of short sea shipping. The three-day training also explained the environmental policies of the European Union on transport, e-Maritime, and port community systems. Using an approach mixing theory and practice, the students also had the chance to discover the city port’s infrastructures during a maritime visit to the port, and terrestrial visits to Autoterminal, the intermodal terminal Can Tunis, the container terminal BEST and the Logistics Activities Zone (ZAL). These ensured that a global view of all actors involved in intermodal operations in a major city port are clearly defined and explained.
The Escola’s courses always leave the students with a longing for more. “”I conclude that it was my second weighty international experience, it was different and experiential, I liked it a lot and would like to participate in similar courses in the future!!!” said an enthusiastic participant upon receiving the certificate of participation.
This Friday (6th of November) 2E3S will also welcome a group of post-doctorate researchers for a visit of the port of Barcelona and an explanation of the port’s infrastructures.
