As the world economy has become increasingly globally interconnected, our global transportation networks and systems have adapted and evolved to accommodate the global movement of people, goods, commodities and information. We cover all major modes of transportation infrastructure spanning this global-to-local modal movement of people, goods, commodities and information across land and water, through the air, space and underground (or underwater). We not only help our clients finance, develop and efficiently operate and maintain these assets, but we also aim to apply intelligent and innovative solutions to constantly improve the efficiency and level-of-service to the users of these vast transportation networks. The following links provide more specific information related our advisory coverage of these transportation infrastructure asset classes that we cover.
In the transport sector, DCS experts can add significant value through application of innovative technologies and processes, and public-private partnerships. Our advisory services help our clients align the capabilities of private sector capital, innovation, "know-how", efficiencies, life-cycle operational and maintenance discipline, and management resources with the public sector objectives of most efficiently providing and ensuring safe, modern and efficient transport infrastructure to citizens and business users at affordable prices (user fees, rates, charges and taxes). We can also assist our clients in identifying and procuring suitable vendors, technology and service providers in the transport sector. Our experts also have significant experience and competence in delivering transportation infrastructure assets under various development, financing, operating and ownership models, including Design-Build (D-B), Engineering Procurement and Construction/Management (EPC/M), Design-Build-Finance (DBF), Operations & Maintenance (O&M), Design-Build-Transfer (DBT), Design-Build-Operate-Transfer (DBOT), Design-Build-Operate-Maintain (DBOM), Design-Build-Finance-Operate-Maintain (DBFOM), Design-Build-Own-Operate (DBOO), Design-Build-Own-Operate-Transfer (DBOOT), and similar variations. We also have significant experience advising on Public-Private Partnership (P3), privatization and M&A transactions within the transport sector. Our broad and global experience also includes all forms of P3 models, under a regulated or deregulated user fee regimes, long-term availability payment, user-fee and hybrid concession and/or lease transactions as well as stock/share, trade and asset sales/acquisitions and Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) with respect to transportation infrastructure companies and assets.
Within the transport sector DCS experts maintain relationships with related project consultants and participants including: both international and local legal advisors; technical, engineering and environmental/social advisors, economic/market consultants; contractors, vendors and technology providers; strategic and financial equity sponsors; lenders (including commercial lenders, international/development financial institutions (IFIs/DFIs), Export Credit Agencies and Export-Import Banks (ECA/Ex-IMs), institutional lenders, bond funds and investment banks) and credit rating agencies (if necessary). We are always prepared and highly experienced in taking on a lead "Transaction Advisory" or "Project/Program Management" role where we coordinate and manage (in some cases, procure and retain via subcontract) various technical, legal and other consultants required for the project. On behalf of our clients we are also prepared and accustomed to leading and concluding negotiations with governmental/public sector or equity sponsors, contractors and venders, lenders, rating agencies and regulators, as may be relevant for a given project.
In many client cases, there may also be a significant nexus between transportation infrastructure assets and systems and other sectors that we specialize in, such as technology and telecommunications (intelligent transportation systems, fiber optic easements), real estate (ports, airports, railways and roadways), hospitality & tourism (hotels, resorts and tourism-related development and commerce), oil & gas (LNG terminals, pipelines, downstream infrastructure), utilities (transmission, distribution pipes and cable infrastructure, rights or way) and others. We are prepared to bring our complementary expertise in these other sectors to our transport sector clients, as their specific project may benefit. There may be many collaborative partnership opportunities between diverse companies and public and private service providers, who may also have synergistic objectives and opportunities related to transportation infrastructure assets and systems. We can help our clients expand the horizons of their project and analyze and understand synergistic economic and commercial impacts related to transportation assets and systems. This will help forge potential new innovative partnerships with both private and public sector parties, where significant added-value can be realized.
