Whether you are a vendor or a purchaser, our public procurement specialists provide sound advice and assistance in the area of public transport.

We are regularly engaged to handle issues relating to government subsidies in the transport sector and the framework for PSO compensation in public contracts relating to the transport of both passengers and cargo by sea and passenger transport by bus.
