Strategic transportation consulting services that will get your project moving

Whether you are a port authority, airline, marine terminal operator, manufacturer, freight carrier or company looking to do business with airlines, airports, marine ports or railways, we can provide strategic insights on Federal and State transportation programs and policies, infrastructure development projects, and supply chain and logistics issues — to increase your competitive advantage.

SPS provides practical guidance, technical expertise and unique perspectives

If you have a transportation question, issue or challenge, SPS has the solution, including:

  • How can your organization access Federal or State transportation programs, services or funding?

  • How can you incorporate ports, terminals and railways into your business plan?

  • Do you have a strategy to fund intermodal infrastructure?

  • Is your airline or airport eligible for a government aviation grant?

  • Can you get a transportation consultant to review your company’s strategic plan?

  • How exactly do ports, marine terminals, airports and railways function?

  • Where can you find a knowledgeable facilitator to moderate a transportation planning session?

How do you get your grant application to rise to the top? 

The funding shortfall for marine port and terminal infrastructure, and airport enhancements is expected to be more than $123 billion over the next 10 years. Though multimodal programs and services for capacity and efficiency projects is increasing, so is the complexity of applying for a grant and the competition for them.

Strong Port Strategies is here to help public entities, including port authorities, and private entities, such as marine terminal operators and airlines, navigate the vast — and often unfathomable — grant application process.


Don’t miss out on another NOFO

Feeling a sense of FOMO with regards to Notice of Funding Opportunities? Historically, only 5¢ has been awarded for every $1 requested. With Strong Port Strategies guiding you, you needn’t worry about missing out on an airport, marine terminal or intermodal connector project grant ever again.
