Sustainability and the energy transition are a clear target for most companies nowadays. We witness this in our client meetings, when this topic is increasingly the core of our talks – be them with public entities, investors or private enterprises.
We are all conscious that we must all do our part to cut emissions globally, solve urban traffic congestion and reduce the related fatalities, make a better use of the existing infrastructures to preserve the natural environment.
Focussing on transport, the opportunities and challenges in front of us are many, for instance:
At VTM, we stand beside our clients in a number of assignments and strive to stay at the edge of innovation in this sector.
How do we do this?
In this exciting evolution, we support international funds in evaluating investment opportunities in the energy transition sector. We advise port authorities to improve railway accessibility. We assist railway operators in structuring and constantly modelling their offer.
We also have extensive experience in advising municipalities and regional governments in implementing sustainable mobility solutions in general and for specific groups – like a school ecosystem (parents, students, teachers and staff) or a business environment – both in the occasion of specific events and for everyday challenges.
Several private enterprises have relied on us to develop company mobility plans aiming to find more sustainable solutions for their employees’ daily travel and reduce their carbon footprint. Actors of the semiconductor industry also chose us to properly structure their logistics.
On the other hand, the last mile of urban logistics requires solutions that optimise the circulating fleets, adapting to the urban space available and the regularity of delivery – always focusing on decarbonisation and minimising the intensity of use of public space.
Finally, we have contributed to strategic projects of the European Commission aiming to pave the way to the transport of the future.
We know it is a drop in the ocean, but we are proud to contribute.

It has the stigma of being dominated by a “macho” culture and it has been regarded as “no […]
“A developed country is not a place where the poor have cars. It’s where the rich use public transportation ” – so Gustavo Petro reminds us. [Portuguese and Spanish translation below] This statement couldn’t be more in line with the national and international vision of mobility. In fact, it is a perfect reflection of […]
