Our clients in the infrastructure industry range from transportation to construction and utilities. They have in common a strong drive for business development to support the green transition and an ever-increasing need for services that increase mobility in society. Infrastructure is an industry where companies are deeply dependent on both the lowest possible total cost of ownership and on-time delivery.
Digitalisation and robust design principles are driving significant business development opportunities in the infrastructure industry. We advise our clients on how to transform their organisations to fully utilise these opportunities alongside their partners in their end-to-end value chains.
Our experience comes from working with major transportation and large construction companies, utilities and TSOs.
We provide strategic and operational advice and help our clients with execution when it comes to digital transformations, operational excellence and data services. We have particular experience in working with sourcing strategies and value stream leadership to help our clients increase productivity, enable the green transition, develop inventory policies, and implement standard processes.
The energy transition
The energy transition and electrification have a massive impact on utilities and construction companies and require a substantial investment in their electrical infrastructure. Utilities are put under massive pressure to build electrical transmission networks that enable both consumer and industrial use of electricity, which calls for new sourcing strategies, operating models and organisational transformations. At the same time, construction companies are setting up organisational capabilities to meet the increasing demands for more environmentally friendly building methods.
We help our infrastructure clients build their operational strategies, commercial models and operating models to achieve their sustainability goals.
Transportation and logistics
The evolution of global commerce, the recent changes in the geopolitical scene and the global COVID-19 change are reshaping the logistics, transportation and shipping sectors. These shifts have caused many companies to rethink their supply chains, creating ripple effects throughout the logistics and transportation patterns. Considerations for warehouse locations, outsourcing and insourcing, nearshoring, and other factors are being reassessed, thereby changing the demand picture for end-to-end logistics companies, both in terms of service offerings and schedule adaptation.
Transportation and logistics companies are under pressure to optimise routes, reduce environmental footprints and adapt to the new supply chain landscape. They are transforming their operating models to align with international regulations and evolving customer expectations. The changes call for innovative solutions ranging from alternative fuels to the use of new digital technologies to reduce costs, enhance supply chain visibility and meet customer demand.
We work with our transportation and logistics clients to build the best service offerings with the latest technology solutions, and we also work with them to adjust their business strategies to ensure operational and commercial excellence in an ever-changing world and demand environment. Further, we assist them in developing their strategic roadmaps, commercial frameworks, and operating structures to achieve their efficiency, sustainability and innovation objectives. In many instances, we collaborate on delivery with The Shipping Collective, a group of experienced consultants from the shipping and logistics industry with whom we share office location in Copenhagen. With The Shipping Collective as our partner, we speak the language of shipping fluently, ensuring that our first meetings dive right into meaningful content rather than prolonged onboarding.
Digitalisation of infrastructure
Digital tools such as AI and machine learning enable the capture and manipulation of massive amounts of data, which enable infrastructure companies to deliver higher uptime and lower total costs of ownership.
We combine digital transformation strategies with deep tech, data and AI skills to help our clients in the infrastructure industry make the next step towards digital maturity.
Enabling customer journeys
Infrastructure companies are required to massively improve their customer journeys. We support our clients in connecting the customer journey with their processes, technology and data in hyper-automation loops, which allows them to move forward in fast sprints.
Governmental and public institutions are constantly faced with demands for change initiated by changes in law and regulation, or rising demands from citizens. One of Valcon’s key specialisms is helping to prepare organisations to deliver efficiently and execute new needs and opportunities in difficult circumstances.
Industrial companies compete in running their daily business efficiently. They also invest heavily in supporting sustainability and mobility in society. We help these companies create platforms to work in both these areas through data, digital and people.
