PORTS

BA translates demand and financial planning into effective solutions for the movement of cargo.

As part of our strategic master planning practice, BA has led multiple efforts to translate cargo type forecasts into facilities that meet the needs of the Port, Operator, Stakeholders and Community. Understanding not only current operational practices, but future trends in technology, supply chain, cargo handling capabilities, capacity & intermodal movements of container and other cargo types is critical to future financial and physical port planning – both on and off dock.
