The IPC team

IPC was established more than 20 years ago by a small group of highly experienced individuals who were all working as independent consultants having had senior roles in major organisations in the port sector.

Today we are able to work as a team or as individuals to meet your project requirements. Each member brings a complementary competence to the team, meaning that IPC can offer a comprehensive range of services.

Our team evolves as the port industry evolves, so we are able to provide advisory services to the highest possible standards.
