Who we are
Port Consultants Rotterdam (PCR) is a Rotterdam-based independent consultancy firm with an international reputation in the field of strategy, management, infrastructure and logistic development in terminals, ports and hinterland.
Port Consultants Rotterdam offers a unique and full package of port related consultancy services covering an entire port development process.
‘From inception to completion’
The Port Consultants Rotterdam approach is best illustrated by the picture below. Whether the aim is port development, transformation or optimization, the implementation process starts with a port scan to analyse the current situation, and a port strategy development to describe the desired future situation. The implementation process subsequently focuses on preparing the port for its future, by means of development, transformation or optimisation.
Port sustainability is mentioned as a separate pillar of our approach as all ports sooner or later will be confronted with the need to improve their sustainability. In our view port sustainability should always be part of any port development, transformation or optimisation process, either as condition or as objective.
