What does the future hold for the key global industries that depend on the transportation of goods and people?
The nature of human labor is fundamentally transforming, and this changes the needs that all companies that support their labor, including their transportation needs.
A leading US automotive firm partnered with us to project the future demand for commercial vehicles across industries & geographies, and chart those industries’ changing dynamics in the coming decade and beyond.
To arrive at a differentiated and value-adding perspective on commercial transportation, we approached each of the key industries by exploring their underlying logics and how those logics drive natural progressions based on contextual changes.
This involved examining their underlying value drivers & dynamics, and the lived experiences of their workers, before jumping into an exercise projecting how these would change based on a comprehensive shifting contextual assessment.
