Mobility Platforms and New Solutions

Online platforms and apps are shaking up markets by offering end-to-end transparency across different types of transportation and logistics services. As a leading railroad consulting firm, we prepare rail operators to seize the opportunities offered by multimodal offerings—and to develop and deploy digital platforms of their own. In addition, we guide rail freight operators in adapting new digital solutions and in positioning their companies strategically in a rapidly changing value chain for transportation and logistics.

Big Data and the Internet of Things

We deploy advanced analytics to help rail industry clients identify routes with potential capacity and optimize yield. We also tap big data and predictive analytics to more easily reduce asset downtime and automate route and maintenance planning in rail infrastructure as well as passenger transport.

New Sharing Alternatives

Evolving modes of transport are reshaping markets around the world. We help rail transport companies collaborate with road and air services, including the emerging networks of autonomous vehicles, ridesharing, and bike sharing.
