The Escola Europea – Intermodal Transport is a European training centre and a reference for intermodal transport and logistics, promoting sustainable logistics in Europe through innovative courses. Our aim is to promote intermodal transport as the basis for sustainable logistics in Europe. The first courses were organised in 2004 and were promoted by the Customer Service Department of the Port of Barcelona with the collaboration of Grimaldi Lines and the Ports of Rome and Lazio.
In 2006 the Escola was formally founded in the shape and form as it is known today by the Ports of Barcelona, Rome and Genoa, as well as the shipping companies Grimaldi Lines and GNV. It’s name was Escola Europea de Short Sea Shipping – 2E3S.eu. It became Escola Europea – Intermodal Transport in 2017.
Throughout the years, the Escola has gained experience and know-how in the areas of administration of national and international projects, communication, contents creation and in the promotion and development of logistics’ clusters in collaboration with recognised European institutions. Nowadays the Escola focuses its activities on three main areas: Project Office, Training and Communication, Knowledge and Research.
