Assist investment decisions in “next generation” vessels

A dynamic container shipping line was seeking to invest in 14,000 and 18,000teu containerships. Being much larger than its current vessels and of new design, before lending, the banks require an independent assessment of their financial and competitive viability.

Strategy and Planning

The combination of understanding and expertise in the markets we serve allows our clients, whether shippers, carriers and port operators, banks, investors and financial intermediaries, to make the right commercial decisions at the right time.

Over the years we have advised an elite and diverse client base of terminal operators, shipping lines and port authorities in a wide range of strategy assignments including internationalisation, market entry, corporate transformation and privatisation.
