We apply technology, connect minds across our global offices, consult with our specialist partners and work with our clients to develop smart solutions together. Our fully integrated, multidisciplinary approach means we can deliver all the expertise a project requires, from optimising existing terminals, creating new port facilities, relocating terminals or refurbishing facilities.

Smart ports, shipyards and terminals

Globally, ports and terminals are under pressure to become faster, more streamlined and more environmentally friendly. While economic uncertainty means new greenfield projects are limited, we see major opportunities for our clients to drive efficiency through digitalisation and automation and are applying smart solutions to improve efficiency, return on investment and sustainable performance for ports and shipyards. Our maritime experts understand the economic realities of ports and terminals and the need to work with the physical environment to create lasting solutions. We assist our clients in all phases of their maritime and transport projects: from trade and traffic forecasts, feasibility studies and first consents/permits, design and execution through to maintenance and business support. We are using new technology and data analytics to help clients optimise existing assets, and our smart ports meet the challenges of adopting sustainability initiatives while delivering more efficient operations.
