The Connected Future for Transport

New operating models to join up delivery for customers, make better use of technology and reduce cost.

The challenges for organisations that deliver transport services and are stewards of transport infrastructure are profound. How can leaders in the sector simultaneously address cost pressures, shifting user expectations, the need to decarbonise transport services, market disruption and new technologies?

How do you prioritise and sequence transformation to achieve a sustainable, risk optimised route to a lower cost and high performing organisation? And how do you do this while protecting essential services, building public trust and employee confidence?

Forward-looking leaders are already responding to the signals of change, learning to change the way their organisations work by connecting customer insight and digital opportunities with their workforce and supply chain strategies to establish more effective approaches to delivering change.

Interviews of 483 leaders from public transportation organisations show 41% of global public transport leaders put improving customer experience as a top strategic goal.
