Maritime and River Transport


In the Strategy for the Competitiveness Enhancement of the Portugal’s Continental Commercial Port Network - Horizon 2026, the sustainable use of the sea's potential is reinforced, reinforcing the national geostrategic position and contributing to the success of the economy of the sea.


Some of the issues that arise in the evolution of this sector are to a large extent the increase in the size of vessels, the progressive containerization, the increase in cruises, the digitization, but also the exploitation of the full potential of the Atlantic facade and the use of 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 fields 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.
