Germany is in motion.
Mobility in Germany is transforming: traffic forecasts predict an increasing demand for both passenger and freight transport. Simultaneously, the transport system needs to become more sustainable to meet the environmental and climate targets. Strategies for smart cities and concepts for the “last mile” in urban areas, for example, help to shape the increasing transport of goods in a sustainable and city-compatible manner.
More than just a switch in drive technology
The subsidisation of electromobility and other alternative drive technologies is only one aspect of sustainable mobility. Our transport system is shaped by a variety of technological developments and social trends. Integrating digital and automated transport services into the overall system requires new strategies and the realignment of transport infrastructure.
New forms of mobility such as ridesharing, ridepooling and e-scooters are not the only factors changing mobility in rural and urban areas. Cycling is also central factor. How much funding should be allocated to the expansion of the cycle transport infrastructure, for example to transport goods by bike in the city centre? Operational mobility management can also make positive changes in people’s transport behaviours, in municipalities and companies. The key is combining economic efficiency and sustainability.
Key to a successful mobility transformation
To successfully transform transport and mobility, comprehensive strategies and substantiated technology impact assessments are essential. Only then can the effects of alternative drive technologies, digitisation and automation, and new mobility offers be evaluated.
Mobility & transport: A selection of our services
Mobility strategies and concepts for companies, associations, and the public sector
We create urban logistics concepts and develop strategies on transport topics for federal and state authorities or municipalities.
Profitability calculations and expert opinions
We calculate the cost-effectiveness of alternative drives and conduct freight transport calculations. We also use sustainability indicators to assess transport infrastructure.
Scenarios for automating traffic
Using our traffic automation scenarios, we predict the mobility of tomorrow.
Analysis of forms of mobility and transport policy
We evaluate and analyse new forms of mobility such as on-demand transport, ride sharing, ride pooling, or e-scooters, as well as cycling.
Evaluation of mobility concepts and transport measures
The evaluation of business models or infrastructure measures in the transport sector is one of our primary business sectors, as is the accompanying research on new forms of mobility.
Public participation and consultations
We moderate stakeholder dialogues and advise our customers on their conception.
