Executives of stevedoring companies from all over the world, belonging to the General Stevedoring Council (GSC), visited the ports of Barcelona and Tarragona this week to participate in a training course in high management focused on port operations logistics.

BERGÉ, as a partner and GSC representative in Spain, has led this project as well as the visits to these branches, in order to create joint lines of work and develop new ones in the future.

Ignacio Gomá (Director of Bergé Marítima Barcelona) and David Parra (Director of the Tarragona Branch) were the hosts in both ports, accompanying the participants and showing them the facilities along with some of the more common operations carried out at their branches.

GSC aims to promote the participation and training of the next generation of company leaders through practical courses held in different ports both in Europe and the US.

The project, attended by companies from all over the world, is internationally renowned and has now landed at Catalonia’s ports, thanks to the management and active participation of BERGÉ.

The objective is to share information, knowledge and contacts within the port operations and stowage industry worldwide. Therefore, in addition to these training programs, GSC also offers executives the chance to regularly participate in networking and benchmarking events.

On this occasion, the delegation that visited BERGÉ’s facilities was made up of executives from Qube Holdings (Australia), Copenhagen Malmö Port (Denmark), KVSA (Holland), Belfast Harbour (Great Britain), Port of Cork (Ireland), Ultraport (Chile) and Ports America (USA), as well as the group’s secretary, Bruno Valkeniers.
