Maritime business consultancy services
Does your maritime installation need more capacity? Do you want to update your processes to adapt to climate change, or improve the sustainability of your operations? Maritime businesses are changing fast – so when you need to be certain of a return on your investment, it pays to collaborate with experts. 

With more than 140 years of global experience, we’re proud to be one of the maritime sector’s most knowledgeable business consultancy partners. Our established, cross-disciplinary team can call upon proprietary analysis tools and an unequalled database of trade, port and shipping data, to help you shape the right business strategy.

Wherever you are in your project journey, we have consultancy services to match. For example, we can screen potential projects to help you decide whether to proceed with an opportunity, conduct feasibility and bankability studies, or give you an independent assessment of a defined plan.

We also offer commercial and financial services, from market studies and commercial due diligence, right through to full transaction support and developing financial models, so you can build a strong business case for the change you need.
