Port Administration and Operations

Considering the amount of world trade that is channeled through ports, efficient and effective port operations management and administration are critical to maintain strong customer relations and port reputation. Port operations include cargo and passenger throughput, operations at the terminal gates, at intermodal on-dock or near-dock rail facilities, cross-docking operations at container freight stations on the marine terminals, cargo warehousing and storage, equipment and auto processing and the security and cargo regulatory functions executed by various levels of homeland security personnel and US Customs personnel. Port administration includes human resources, finance, procurement, contract administration, risk management, government affairs, public relations and information technology. Ancillary port administration and operations services are strategic planning, facility development, real estate acquisition and management, environmental compliance, engineering and construction management.

TranSystems offers a number of services to help maritime businesses maximize the performance of their cargo and cruise terminal operations. We streamline cargo terminal and intermodal facility throughput with modeling and computer driven simulation to maximize efficiencies.  We also provide the more traditional architecture and engineering functions of master planning, market studies, demand analysis, trend forecasting, econometric modeling, facility layout and site planning, infrastructure design, preparation of plans and specifications for construction bidding, bid evaluation, construction management and construction engineering and inspection services.

Additionally, TranSystems has arguably the consulting industry’s strongest and most respected capability in port and maritime security. Our abilities cover the application of both the myriad of regulations and guidelines that apply to cargo and cruise operations as well as the voluminous facility security requirements that must be identified, correctly interpreted and incorporated in the design of virtually every maritime industry facility, from cruise terminals to rail yards.

We offer a staff of professionals who are skilled and highly experienced in port strategic planning, market studies, demand analysis, cargo trend forecasting, econometric modeling, environmental analysis-compliance-documentation and mitigation development, intermodal rail and truck facility planning and design, bridge and highway design, mechanical and electrical design, cargo terminal and cargo handling equipment design and construction management.
