Trade & Logistics

Our knowledge and expertise isn’t just about Trade & Logistics - it’s about understanding client’s operations and overall shipping industry to enhance their customer’s experience.



We look for solutions that not only look at marine transportation but consider alternative transportation modes. We're able to investigate alternatives, and present results to community stakeholders.



Great marine infrastructures don't just happen - they are born from a thoughtful vision, intelligent design and perfect execution. MariNova researches and analyzes the way people experience and use the space and make the connection between land and sea.
