Hamburg Port Consulting (HPC) has teamed up with international management consultancy Roland Berger to jointly preparing a proposal with options for a new approach in its needed construction and operations of Beirut port.
The study will include proposals for a better integration of the port area into Beirut city and show how its overall investment and finance can be tackled.
“We have been shocked by the devastating explosion that occurred on 4 August. Given our longstanding relations with Beirut, we immediately offered our support and help,” said Suheil Mahayni, managing director at HPC. “We have been active since almost immediately after the explosion and stand by our readiness to support the further consultancy, reconstruction and operations of the port of Beirut.”
Under the strategy study, HPC is focusing on improving efficiencies and transparencies of the port’s terminals while Roland Berger is advising on the strategic positioning and the institutional setup.
The study is currently in preparation, first results will be expected to be discussed within the next weeks. The goal is for the study to be made available to the public after completion.
