Ports, Transport & Logistics
As Asian economies grow and as the trade flows to and from Asian countries increase the demand for new infrastructure, new terminals and ports, new industrial estate projects and related utilities also increases. AWR Lloyd provides project-focused, country-focused or regional studies which analyze potential demand for infrastructure, industrial estate, terminal and utility facilities – and for the products (e.g. steel, oil, chemicals, agricultural commodities….) which are likely to be transported, produced or stored at these locations. We also analyze the current and future structure of corporate control in these infrastructure sectors, capital cost and operating cost estimates, trade flows and long-term supply and demand dynamics.
For example, AWR Lloyd was appointed to advise in relation to a major infrastructure project in the south of Thailand involving both energy and non-energy components. The core aspect of the project was an oil pipeline with oil storage and a refinery – but an industrial estate, an aluminium smelter and other industries were also being considered. AWR Lloyd provided a comprehensive analysis of demand potential for all aspects of the infrastructure project. We are also currently advising in relation to investment in a water treatment company in Vietnam.
AWR Lloyd was appointed to provide feasibility studies for two major infrastructure projects in Myanamar: a container port expansion in Yangon and a multi-purpose port and industrial estate in Mandalay.
AWR Lloyd has a long term strategic partnership with Royal Haskoning, one of the world’s leading maritime and infrastructure engineering groups.
