The UK transport sector faces both significant challenges and major opportunities. Post-COVID-19 reduced demand is putting public and private sector balance sheets under pressure. The Government and operators need to work together to plot their way back to a “new normal.” Opportunities include; new technologies for smart ticketing, network optimisation and helping achieve “Net Zero” carbon emissions for transport. The sector is also critical to the Government’s efforts to kick-start the economy by accelerating the delivery of new road and rail infrastructure.
KPMG has a market-leading understanding of the policy, commercial and operational drivers across the transport sector. We stand ready to assist our clients in working through both current and emerging issues.
Led by Ed Thomas, KPMG’s UK Transport team is made up of over 300 professionals working across all transport sub-sectors: rail and bus, aviation, shipping and ports, road freight and logistics (including postal.) Our staff have backgrounds in areas as diverse as accounting and finance, banking, engineering, government and policy, construction and operations.
We bring understanding of both the policy drivers of government and the commercial drivers of those who invest in the sector.
