It is now critical for ports to obtain base line valuations of their land holdings and facilities to better manage their core business. In this fashion, they can more accurately gauge the value of lying ‘within the fence’ of such a highly specialized business and logistical environment as a port to:

  • Better reassess book values for property assets moving forward and to better structure leases
  • Identify the real ‘market’ premium of port located real estate as leaseholds is challenging and requires an in-depth knowledge of the working dynamics of ports as a business
  • Address increasing corporate reporting requirements, especially as it relates to property assets
  • Better analyse and structure public private partnerships
