A word from our Director

Eduard Rodés, director of the Escola Europea

Welcome to the world of the Escola Europea – Intermodal Transport!

We are a training centre of a different kind with an extremely interactive and person-oriented approach; we are in pursuit of technical and humanist excellence, with a training programme that introduces the technical concepts of the logistics and port sectors to the participants using a methodology that facilitates communication and relations among the participants.

The Escola, founded in 2006, is still a young centre. At the same time it has followed a large trajectory throughout its lifetime and gathered diverse international experiences. Students from across Europe, America and Africa have passed through our doors. We have participated in numerous European and Mediterranean projects – ones that have contributed to the development of intermodal transport in the international arena.

What sets us apart from other training methods and centres is the combination of theory with reality. This allows the students to experience what they have learned in the classrooms. As a result, the concepts studied are retained and can immediately be put into practice once the course finishes. Our partners, the ports and shipping lines, give us access to unrivalled training instruments: the infrastructures and the technical mediums. The port communities, our collaborators, provide us with knowledge, equipment and the experiences of their services and operations. They do it to promote their own activities and to give value to the logistics-port sector, which is consistently gaining strength through three main elements: its growing economic importance, job creation and sustainability of the solutions offered. We tailor our courses to different levels of commitment and budgets. They range from short courses covering the essentials to longer ones on board of vessels or trains, ranging in duration from three to five days.

They all share some common elements: Coherent and comprehensive programmes, well defined and current contents, well-prepared and motivated lecturers, quality learning materials and practical experiences. Overall, they provide life-experiences that turn into long-lasting memories for all. We have a team of professionals ready to offer you all the information you may require and look forward to welcoming you in the near future.
