Changes in market conditions, special circumstances (e.g. COVID-19), new regulations or the required energy transition are factors which affect the ‘business as usual’ of port and terminal operations, requiring a transformation to adapt to the changing conditions and maintain their competitiveness.

Port Consultants Rotterdam can assist ports and terminals in their transformation to improve their performance and identify new business opportunities by:

  • Identifying potential new cargo segments, businesses, and clients

  • Defining and rationalizing spatial, infrastructural, nautical, operational, and organizational requirements

  • Studying the transformation of port or terminal functions

  • Developing a strategy and pathways for a ‘green’ transformation

  • Optimising logistic chains and use of the port assets

  • Detecting sub-optimal elements and opportunities for potential improvements
