Typical Projects from Our Management Consulting Practice

Market Research and Business Plan development for a maritime equipment financing business unit.

This project was undertaken on behalf of a major US financial institution.

Condition evaluation of doublestack railcars and sludge containers

We were called in to evaluate the condition and value of a small fleet of doublestack cars and specialized containers used from transporting sludge. Sludge is the solid by product of water reclamation. We were required to conduct both an economic analysis as well as a physical inspection on the equipment. This project was undertaken on behalf of a major US financial institution.

Due diligence study on marine containers

We were required to provide a due diligence study for a major US equipment lessor covering a container fleet it was acquiring. This required not only a valuation of the equipment, but also an in depth analysis of technical specifications that had been employed in the original purchase of the equipment.

Manage the return of equipment at end of lease

At the request of a financial institution client we managed the return of their assets from a lessee at the end of the lease transaction. This involved setting up depots on an international basis, managing the return inspection process, negotiating repairs, and eventually disposing of the containers.

Develop maintenance management policies for refrigerated container generator sets

We were retained by Danish ocean carrier to streamline their policies covering the maintenance procedures for their fleet of generators (gensets) used to power refrigerated containers.
