Consulting in mobility and logistics
Our engineers, economists and research officers provide their expertise on issues related to waterborne transport (passengers and freight), from an operational point of view (market studies, impact studies, mobility, risk assessment, logistics, safety and security of transport, etc.), organizational ( feasibility studies) and from a technical point of view (naval architecture, ship design, etc.).
On this basis, STR Europe supports local authorities and transport companies in their projects for the development of new transport lignes and new transport networks which fully integrate waterborne transport..
Research and development
