The role of international trade has been ever-increasing especially since Spain joined the European Union (EU) in 1986. International trade comprises commercial cooperation both within the EU and with third countries, and is heavily influenced by new technologies.

The globalization processes that came into being at the start of the new millennium have significantly boosted the scope and volume of international exchange, driving transport companies to staff up in order to cover the rising needs of the industry. The knowledge and skills for this career can be obtained from our vocational training program.
