Civitavecchia - 1st October 2018

The 4th edition of MOST (Motorways of the Sea Training), organised by the European School of Short Sea Shipping, opened on Saturday 29th September, being the Port System Authority of the Center-North Thyrrenian Sea a founding partner, together with the ports of Genoa and Barcelona, as well as a shipowners Grandi Navi Veloci and Grimaldi Lines.

The course is held during a return journey from Civitavecchia to Barcelona on board a Grimaldi ship, as part of the wide range of training available at the School in the area of intermodality and short sea shipping.

In the past ten years, the School has gained exceptional experience in training employees in developing their abilities in efficient transports and sustainable solutions, specially short sea shipping, highways of the sea and rail and road transports.

Highways of the Sea are for the port of Civitavecchia one of the most important traffic segments and they will be further developed, thanks to funding by EU project "BClink", in the Civitavecchia-Barcelona route by building a new ro-ro dock in the port of Civitavecchia and the adaptation of a dock and a terminal in the port of Barcelona.

Close to 40 participants this year, including participants from the Port System Authorities of Taranto, Genoa or Barcelona and RAM and ALIS representatives, have tested the worth and importance of the course. 

As usual, the meeting and starting point has been the Port System Authority of Civitavecchia, attended by Doctor Mauro Coletta, General Director for the Supervision of Port Authorities from the Ministry for Infrastructures and Transports, who highly valued the programme of the School, and Francesco Maria di Majo, President of the Port System Authority of the Center-North Thyrrenian Sea, who restated that the School training courses accompany the development of Highways of the Sea, intermodal transport and logistics. 

The AdSP of the Center-North Thyrrenian Sea continues supporting the School, which decided unanimously last April to open their Italian branch in Civitavecchia and will launch in the port in 2019 a new training project called "Training in the Port" - already tested with success in Barcelona.

Finally, in addition to "Training in the port", there is an ongoing five-year project called "Translogmed" funded by the Union for the Mediterranean that will include the School and their partners in North Africa in the promotion of intermodality and short sea shipping.
