TranSystems has worked on many inland port projects, in many capacities. We understand that there are various models for developing an inland port and we tailor our services to meet our clients’ needs, ranging from strategic analysis and financial modeling to operational analysis and layout.
For inland ports served by rail, we have effectively combined our understanding of the movement of goods from international origins and cargo forecasting with our expertise in rail operations. This helps us determine the correct sizing of rail-served inland port facilities and the operational model that will work. We understand what drivers determine market demand for inland ports, whether they are served by rail, air, or barge.
We have also worked with many economic development organizations to help them determine what attributes they should promote and what types of development will be most likely to attract business to their areas. This consulting expertise extends to identifying what types of customers are likely to locate at their sites and what specific services should be offered. We also understand the financial feasibility factors and can provide financial planning assistance.
