In line with the Strategy for Improving Competitiveness of the Portuguese Continental Commercial Port Network - Horizon 2026, a more sustainable use of the potential of the sea is safeguarded, reinforcing Portugal’s national geostrategic position and contributing to the success of the sea economy.
Some of the issues that arise from the development of this sector mostly include the increase in the size of vessels, progressive containerisation, the upsurge in the number of cruise ships, digitalisation, as well as the exploitation of the full potential of the Atlantic facade and in taking advantage of multimodality from the Atlantic Corridor.
Inland waterway transportation, often only viewed from the passenger’s perspective, is also expected to play an important role in freight transportation, taking advantage of existing waterways.
TIS has participated in numerous projects related to maritime and inland waterway transportation, both at a national and international level, in the consultancy and research fields for the European Commission and for industry agencies.
In recent years, we have collaborated in the development of a large part of the Strategic Plans of the Portuguese ports and maritime terminals, having also accompanied the development of European policies and the consolidation of the national and TEN-T strategic corridors.
