LOGISMED Training Activities
Context and objectives
LOGISMED-Training Activities (LOGISMED-TA) helped improve the qualifications of operators and managers in the logistics sector, boosting transport and logistics in the Mediterranean.
The lack of qualified staff, adequate training programmes and harmonised logistics systems hinders smooth trade flows in the Mediterranean region. LOGISMED-TA reinforced the competitiveness of the region’s transport and logistics sectors by complementing existing training programmes and supporting Mediterranean countries in their efforts to improve the qualifications of personnel in the sector.
LOGISMED-TA was part of the LOGISMED programme promoted by the European Investment Bank (EIB), which aims to create a network of Euro-Mediterranean logistics platforms working under common quality criteria.
The LOGISMED-TA project increased the level of training offered to operators and managers in the logistics sector.
It improved the performance of the logistics sector in the Mediterranean region.
The project also contributed to the creation of a more competitive and efficient network of Euro-Mediterranean logistics platforms.
