International University of Catalonia students introduced to intermodality by 2E3S

On the 6th of February the Escola Europea de Short Sea Shipping welcomed a group of 30 students from the International University of Catalonia (UIC – Universidad Internacional de Catalunya) on an Introduction to Intermodality course. The training aims to give a brief and comprehensive overview of the logistical offer of the Port of Barcelona and to introduce the course participants to intermodal logistics in a European landscape.

The course was organised under the WHITE (White paper Holistic project of the Escola) project, that offers a wide variety of courses to students wishing to broaden their expertise and general knowledge in the fields of maritime logistics and intermodal transport. The courses offered range from 1-day long introductory events to a 4-day long practical journey on board of a Ro-Pax vessel or a classroom-train offering an all-encompassing view of intermodal, short sea shipping and railway operations.
