Transportation & Logistics
Shaping and optimizing the global infrastructure that gets us where we’re going
The global economy is defined by the infrastructure that connects people, goods, and services across borders. Without it, entire industries, whole economies, and global commerce as we know it would come to a screeching halt. Today, this infrastructure is buffeted by the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, drastic shocks to the global trade system, and increasing economic volatility. Intricate supply chains and digital technology are rendering legacy infrastructure and traditional business models obsolete.
Transportation and logistics leaders must confront change and manage disruption by making the bold strategic and operational decisions needed to thrive in today’s highly dynamic operating environment.
