Optimising the performance of assets and organisations

First class service and value for passengers; optimising the condition, yield and efficiency of assets; leveraging new technologies; delivering the capacity and connectivity to support economic growth.

Transport infrastructure plays a fundamental role in driving economic growth and enabling the UK to compete in the global economy. However, austerity measures, a challenging financial climate, industry reform and stringent public scrutiny are making the delivery of a first class 21st century transport system ever more challenging.

Deloitte works across the transport sector supporting public and private sector clients in delivering and optimising the performance of their transport assets, addressing the key business challenges within their own organisations and managing change in the wake of regulatory change and reforms.

With a deep understanding of the sector and extensive international industry experience, our dedicated Transport network brings together the best of Deloitte’s leading, multi-disciplinary expertise to advise owners and operators across the full lifecycle of a transport asset; from planning, financing and procurement, through managing capital programmes, to operation, maintenance and advisory on asset disposals and acquisitions.
