New port business prospecting

We create and foment connections between investors and logistics players (port terminals, land-lords, investment funds, banks, tradings, etc.), creating a bridge between the operational and the financial project scopes. Those connections are stablished through the evaluation of the technical and logistics aspects of the project, converting basic engineering project outputs into inputs to the financial-economic models. ­
