The Escola Europea is delighted to announce the successful conclusion of the latest edition of the MOST Iberia course, bringing together professionals from the Spanish and Portuguese logistics-port sectors. Notably, this year’s course witnessed a significant shift in participant demographics, with an increasing number of professionals from Portuguese companies actively engaging in the programme, returning to the shape that the course had pre-pandemic.
Over the course of four enriching days, professionals from diverse organizations, including ENIDH, Move Expert, Adm Porto Sines, Deloitte (with three participants), A3 Logistics, Port de Barcelona, Universidad A Coruña, Port of Tarragona, and Noatum (with two participants) from Spain and Portugal convened in Barcelona. This collective gathering allowed for an engaging exchange of knowledge, the sharing of experiences, and the forging of lasting professional relationships.
The course, which focused on intermodal logistics and motorways of the sea, provided an ideal platform for participants to enhance their competencies, while the unique environment of a crossing on Grimaldi Lines‘ Ro-Pax ferry between Barcelona and Civitavecchia allowed for a deeper understanding of each participant’s unique experiences.
Guided by a panel of expert professors, which included individuals such as Vitor Caldeirinha, the Director of SPC Intermodal Portugal, Javier Méndez, responsible for short sea shipping at the Port of Barcelona, and Antonio Vargas, an advisor of Grimaldi Logística España, the participants benefited from a well-rounded learning experience.
During the course, professionals from these diverse backgrounds came together in Barcelona to embark on a journey of knowledge sharing and collaboration. They explored various aspects of intermodal logistics and motorways of the sea, enhancing their professional skills and expanding their human networks.
The group also had the privilege of participating in a crossing on Grimaldi Lines’ Ro-Pax ferry, which connects Barcelona with Civitavecchia. This unique setting allowed participants to exchange knowledge, idiosyncrasies, and previous experiences from their respective countries.
One of the course highlights was the case study where participants tackled a real-life scenario related to short sea shipping viability. They applied direct and external cost calculations to evaluate economic, environmental, and social aspects of different alternatives.
