Political intelligence for public affairs and government relations in the transport sector
Reform and regeneration
Planes, trains and automobiles
(and buses, shipping, freight and logistics)
Transport means different things to different industries. You might need to know how rail strikes are being negotiated, what sustainable aviation fuel regulation is coming or how post-Brexit border controls will impact your logistics. DeHavilland’s transport clients are treated as individuals and benefit from bespoke political intelligence that matters to them.
DeHavilland political intelligence for transport
Strikes dominate today’s agenda but it will be reform that impacts the rail industry long into the future. While much of the anticipated restructuring has only been outlined and Great British Railways is still in its transition phase, change is likely to be high up the agenda of the winning party after the next general election.
DeHavilland’s cutting edge platform and in-house team of experts will keep you informed of how rail policy develops in real-time and give you the tools to influence its progress. From identifying the right stakeholders at a national and local level, to providing the key points from the latest legislation and contextualising the rail industry within the broader transport sector, DeHavilland keeps your public affairs strategy on track.
Vital lifelines for rural communities, bus networks across the country were changed by the pandemic and funding is now top of the agenda to keep routes open. Reform is expected with franchising as a possibility, but action is yet to be taken.
DeHavilland’s custom alerts keep you up to date with each bus-related mention from parliament and beyond, while our in-house team of analysts extract the content that matters to you from legislation and policy updates. DeHavilland PeoplePoint also lists thousands of politicians and councillors across the country, who represent everywhere from the busiest metropolitans to the smallest hamlets.
Aviation opens the UK up to the rest of the world but it is often in the spotlight for its environmental costs. Legislation linked to the Emissions Trading Scheme or Sustainable Aviation Fuel adapts fast, and your organisation needs to know the Government’s current aims and regulations in order to plan ahead.
From environmental policies and the impact of the ICAO to the VAT ‘tourism tax’, DeHavilland tracks all major political updates. Our in-house experts work alongside you to understand your needs and goals – becoming an extension of your team. Real-time alerts make sure you stay ahead of the competition and allow you to avoid any unnecessary risk.
Freight and Logistics
Post-Brexit trade agreements and border controls continue to challenge every freight and logistics company that operates internationally. Understanding these major political developments while focusing on the future of transport tech – from decarbonisation to green shipping corridors – as well as dealing with the “regular” day-to-day, means every government affairs team is now stretched.
DeHavilland’s in-house policy team provides additional resource and expertise across the sector including insight into the macro political context we all operate in. We recognise the role of freight and logistics in the future economy and partner with clients to help them shape it.
