In the preamble of the Strategy for the Competitiveness Enhancement of the Continent's Commercial Port Network - Horizon 2026, it is stated that: "The sustainable use of the potentialities of the sea, profound symbol of national identity, will allow Portugal to assume a leadership role in a sector which is a future-proof, reinforcing the national geo-strategic position and contributing for the success of the economy of the sea, which, in turn, is based, among other strategic vectors, on reinforcing Euro-Atlantic centrality from the point of view of ports and logistic."
Some of the issues that arise in the evolution of this sector are largely due to the increase in the size of vessels, progressive containerization, increase of the number of cruises, digitization, but also the exploitation of the full potential of the Atlantic and the use of the multimodality provided by the Atlantic Corridor.
Inland waterway transport, often viewed only from the perspective of passengers, will also play an important role in freight transport, taking advantage of existing waterways.
TIS has participated in numerous projects related to maritime and inland waterway transport, both at national and international level, in the consultancy and research areas for the European Commission and industry agencies.
In recent years, we have collaborated in the development of a large part of the Strategic Plans for Portuguese ports and maritime terminals, and also accompanied the development of European policies and the consolidation of the national and TEN-T strategic corridors.
