“DocksTheFuture" is a European Project selected by INEA under Horizon 2020 Programme to help define the port of the future.

Circle will lead a working group consisting of academic partners ISL Institut für Seeverkehrswirtschaft und Logistik - ISL in Bremen, Germany and the University of Genoa, together with consulting companies Magellan (Portugal) and Ports Expertise (Belgium).

The project, to start in January 2018, will also provide for a Communication and Dissemination Plan addressed to all TEN-T Core and Comprehensive Ports and main port stakeholders. The project, which will run for 30 months to 30th June 2018, is backed by the European Commission to the tune of €1.2M.

It aims to define what ports should look like in the near future (2030), having faced challenges related to simplification and digitalization of processes, dredging, emission reduction, energy transition, electrification, smart grids, port-city interface and the use of renewable energy management.

Circle provides process and management consulting services, technological solutions and digital marketing services for transport and logistics. Its MILOS software platform is aimed at optimisation of any kind of cargo transport.

Together with its Portuguese partner Magellan, it is currently involved in a project for the Port of Leixões Authority (APDL) to facilitate river freight on the River Douro.
