Flowing Forward with Functional Expertise

Ports and harbors serve as crucial gateways to global trade and economic growth, especially in coastal regions. These complex facilities include docks, piers, terminals, navigational aids, and shore-based infrastructure. Developing and maintaining them requires a multidisciplinary approach that addresses both functionality and environmental sustainability. 

With a strong focus on the evaluation and strategic development of necessary facilities and equipment to accommodate future cargo and product handling demands, GIS has successfully provided front end engineering and detailed designs, as well as managed construction projects for ports, terminals, and intermodal facilities along coastal regions as well as throughout the United States.

As a decades-long provider of port and harbor services, GIS leads master planning efforts, starting with conducting a variety of feasibility studies, terrestrial, and hydrographic surveys.

Our teams access data from across the country to complete multi-criteria analyses, helping clients understand their ability to support economic, social, technical, and environmental needs of each designated port or harbor area. From dredging and expansion to geographic sustainability, we assist with identifying important risks and impacts to consider for each project. 

Once feasibility studies are complete, our expertise continues with full, in-house project management, engineering, procurement, fabrication, construction.

Whether you are modernizing your port with shore power, repairing your bulk head or undergoing an expansion, GIS is committed to executing your project from concept to commissioning. In addition, GIS provides skilled dockside services and logistics to load, unload, dispatch, store, and dispose of materials from vessels, and assets with complete environmental cleaning and NORM handling.
