Our deep expertise across transportation, logistics and digitally enabled mobility ensures that your organization keeps people—and the things people depend on—moving more efficiently than ever. Our transportation consultants have helped hundreds of express, parcel and post companies, trucking companies, third-party logistics providers, railways, port operators, ocean shippers and distributors, mass transit systems and other transportation companies around the world solve complex problems and seize leadership positions.
The Covid-19 pandemic not only strained global logistics and freight delivery systems, it underscored how critical they are—and, to some extent, how vulnerable. Even before the pandemic hit, companies were mapping new strategies to cope with labour shortages, fluctuating fuel prices, disruptive competitors, sustainability concerns, regulatory demands, and many other challenges. The pandemic amplified the urgency around all these issues, ushering in a new normal that has yet to normalize.
Our experience in this highly fragmented industry is both broad and deep: Our freight and logistics consultants work with companies in every sub-sector, including express, parcel and postal services, trucking, 3PL, rail, transport infrastructure, ocean shipping, and distribution, to enhance every facet of operations and find opportunities for growth and superior performance.
Every industry faces disruption, but not like this. Even as ride-sharing, car-pooling and on-demand transportation gave passengers many new options, the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic brought travel to a near halt, and seems likely to alter passenger behaviours and expectations for years to come.
Public transit systems incurred massive costs in response to the pandemic, including new cleaning procedures, seating arrangements, access to medical services, changes to booking and loyalty programs, and more. As the crisis abates, passenger transportation companies need to make the right strategic and operational moves now to achieve a sustainable competitive advantage.
Our railway and public transit consulting expertise can help your organization manage costs, anticipate demand, and take the bold actions required to thrive in a post-pandemic world. We work side-by-side with you to identify and deploy powerful new digital technologies, assess and respond to changing customer demands and expectations, and determine the organizational changes necessary to operate in an intensely competitive sector. Passengers will return, but pre-pandemic norms will not. Let us help you understand what the future holds, so you can get started today.
