Mercator was engaged by an operator of a portfolio of container and multi-purpose terminals in Europe, the Mediterranean, and South America to provide support for its efforts to raise capital from debt and equity investors.  Mercator performed commercial assessments for a wide variety of geographies, markets, tradelanes, commodities, and services to inform independent forecasts of volume and rate for each terminal.  In addition, Mercator evaluated operations, capacity, and capex requirements, and ultimately developed financial forecasts for each terminal by line of business.
