Within the signed collaboration agreement with the National Ports Agency of Morocco, the professionals will visit the facilities of BERGÉ in Madrid, Tarragona, Barcelona, Bilbao and Santander.
BERGÉ, through their business unit Port Operations, has started the International Talent Development Program in collaboration with the Port Training Institute (IFP) of Morocco today. The institution is integrated within the National Ports Agency (ANP) with which BERGÉ signed a collaboration agreement, last March, to promote the formation and specialization in the management and port logistics field.
During the next two weeks, a selected group of 12 professionals from ANP will participate in a course with lessons days and professional meetings that will include the realization of technical visits to the ports and facilities where BERGÉ operates in Spain, from its headquarters and its vehicle logistics center (Ciempozuelos) in Madrid, to the port terminals of Barcelona, Tarragona, Bilbao, and Santander. Terminals specialized in vehicles, agri-food and industrial bulk, steel products, as well as those destined to “Project Cargo”.
The designed program covers different modules which will deal with the management of logistics platforms and dry ports, the management of port infrastructures, the ports security and prevention, the efficiency, the innovation and digitalization of processes, as well as the marketing and communication. An initiative that aims to promote bilateral cooperation with Morocco for the formation of young professionals in the port sector.
