Since 1914, when PwC’s Strategy&’s predecessor Booz & Company was founded and undertook its first consulting assignment for the Illinois State Railroad, the transportation industry has been challenged to keep pace with a rapidly changing world. Fundamental shifts in population and economic centers have created demand for new and expanded transportation systems and services. New business models, technologies, regulations, and stakeholder expectations have also had a profound effect on transportation providers. Through all this change, Strategy& has worked with private- and public-sector transportation clients to develop and execute sound strategies and achieve business and organizational goals.
The good news may be in the past, and now is the time for airlines to digitize and reassess their competitive positions.
As digital native competitors proliferate, established transportation companies must embrace innovation to keep up with their customers.
The benefits of the glut are being distributed unevenly.
Strategy& works with all types of megaproject stakeholders, including corporate owners, engineering procurement and construction (EPC) firms, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), governments, and major suppliers to improve the likelihood that megaproject scope will be delivered safely, on-time, on budget, and with high quality.
Our thought leadership
A higher level of service in first-class cabins, with lie-flat seats and other amenities, has boosted revenues for airlines that have begun offering it on domestic long-haul flights.
The airport industry has its priorities. Managing operating costs, avoiding potential disruptions and improving passenger experiences all land at the top of the list. But it may be missing a critical player in its operations.
Three topics are currently keeping executives in the road, rail, and air cargo sectors awake at night: same-day delivery, 3D printing, and autonomous vehicles.
Traditional retailers can outshine their online competitors in the distribution game.
The obstacles to adoption are significant, but driverless technology now in development could transform long-haul trucking.
