Overview of services
We understand the special challenge of organising freight transport and take this into account when planning the required infrastructure: in freight transport, the bundling of transport flows is even more distinct in spatial terms (large consignors and consignees) as well as in timing terms (just in time delivery, necessity of “night jumps”) than in passenger transport. Furthermore, international and intermodal transport chains play a central role in logistics, including the collection and distribution of goods in the whole area. Together with our clients from infrastructure operators and the transport industry, we develop demand-oriented transport concepts.
The increasing demand for transport is also accompanied by corresponding environmental impacts, which must always be kept in mind when developing transport concepts and infrastructure measures. We prepare well-founded transport volume frameworks to make them available for downstream impact analyses.

Keeping an eye on the interaction of freight and passenger traffic
Transport infrastructure usually serves both modes of transport. Conflicts of use and objectives are inevitable here. When examining transport projects, we wear “both sets of glasses” if necessary. For example, when increasing the frequency of passenger transport on important railway lines, the influence on the capacities and timetables of goods trains must also be taken into account. In our opionion, this is one of the special challenges of the planned Germany-wide Integrated Synchronised Timetables (“Deutschlandtakt”).
The spectrum of our customers in the freight transport sector is as broad as our range of services: Federal ministries and subordinate authorities are just as well represented as airports, infrastructure operators or investors.
