The current lack of qualified staff, adequate training programmes and harmonized logistics systems hinders a smooth trade flow in the Mediterranean region.
“LOGISMED Training Activities (LOGISMED –TA)” will reinforce the transport sector and will enhance the competitiveness of the logistics in the region, complementing existing training programmes and supporting the Mediterranean countries in their efforts to improve the qualifications of the personnel in the sector.
With a national and regional approach, LOGISMED-TA aims at:
- Increasing the training offer and improving the level of qualifications of logistics platforms’ operators and managers.
- Improving the performance of the logistics sector in the Mediterranean region.
- Contributing to the creation of a more competitive and efficient network of Euro-Mediterranean logistics platforms.
LOGISMED-TA is a component of the LOGISMED programme, promoted by the European Investment Bank (EIB), and aimed at creating a network of Euro-Mediterranean logistics platforms working under common quality criteria.
LOGISMED-TA will be implemented during the period 2013-2018 in ten Mediterranean countries and five logistics platforms.
