Ports provide a critical gateway for international waterborne trade.  Making ports and their inland distribution systems more capable can contribute immensely to country's economic success and prosperity. Well-maintained, modernized, and efficient Port infrastructure and operations can result in increased trading activity that can greatly benefit emerging economies.

"CPCS has helped ports around the world to move towards more efficient market-driven systems.  We combine port operations, technical and organizational expertise, with an understanding of the context of port reform and the role of the private sector in port development and operation."
