The movement of people, and the efficiency of global supply chains depend on effective transport networks and infrastructure. From the containerships and tankers that form the backbone of global maritime transport, to the rail and metro networks that carry millions of passengers per day, transport plays a vital role in the global economy and people’s lives.
This makes safe, reliable design and operations, and effective project management top priorities for organizations involved in rail and maritime transport and infrastructure.
Reduce risk and improve transport efficiency
Bureau Veritas provides a range of services to the rail and maritime transport industries to optimize safety, and ensure smooth logistics. These services cover the full life cycle of projects, from design, through component manufacturing to construction and operation.
For the rail and light rail industries, we provide third-party verification, including technical oversight of design and construction for complex engineering projects. Clients involved in some of the world’s largest projects rely on our inspectors and quality experts to manage construction quality, and ensure compliance with regulations. Once a rail project is in operation, we support safety and business continuity by carrying out regular inspections, and providing certification of equipment and management systems.
As one of the world’s leading ship classification societies, we also play a central role in container and tanker shipping. Our classification and advisory services safeguard crews, cargo, and the environment and preserve the integrity of vessels. We also inspect containers at port to validate conformity of quantity and quality on behalf of governments and importers.
Finally, we provide a wide range of services to support port infrastructure projects, including inspection of port cranes once a port is in operation.
