Maritime and ports

Supporting programmes and strategic investments across the maritime and ports sector by assuring, optimising and delivering complex requirements and applying major programmes and projects best practice.

Cost and value in the maritime sector

Global maritime sector operations span a diverse range of activities including shipping, ports and harbours, maritime business services, nautical engineering and leisure marine. Long distance trade relies on containerised shipping, which transports some 11 billion tons of goods each year, and increasingly tight schedules. Changing market demands and vessel evolution are driving the adaptation and expansion of existing facilities and associated strategic infrastructure hubs including warehousing, rail, roads and terminals.

To meet increasing demand, the maritime sector is continually challenging itself – and its suppliers to provide cost-effective, future proofed infrastructure which enhances efficiencies and reduces operating costs. Owners and operators are rapidly adopting innovative technology to support adaptation and working with maritime and ship building industry organisations to provide more technologically advanced, ships, storage vessels and associated facilities. The sector is also innovating to respond to global environmental challenges by increasing the energy efficiency of port infrastructure and shipping, and by exploring alternative greener fuels for fleets.

We are recognised for our multi-modal transport sector expertise which includes ports, maritime facilities and associated terminal infrastructure. We bring project and major programmes expertise to advise on major expansion programmes and the development of new terminal facilities, and identify opportunities for operating cost reductions.

Our expertise covers the full lifecycle of a port facilities life and includes advising on business case development, identifying opportunities for capital and operating cost reductions, managing change in a live, operating environments and project managing enhancement or replacement works.

Our understanding of commodities, trade agreements and special economic zones enables us to provide the best outcomes for our clients.
