Advisory service offering for mobility actors
Benefiting from its long-standing experience in strategy consulting for major industrial groups and its expertise in competitive dynamics, YKems has developed a new practice dedicated to new forms of mobility (NFM). Today, YKems provides a broad analytical framework to its clients (Public Transport Authorities, transport operators, tier-1 suppliers,…), based on competitive mechanisms analysis, to address the strategic questions raised by the emergence of new forms of mobility. YKems’ tools and methods allow to provide quantified back-up to strategic choices with a wide range of applications. Ykems answers key questions about NFM:
- What would be the size of NFM vehicle fleets?
- What will be the cannibalization effect on traditionnal transportation modes?
- What latent demand could be released by the development of NFMs?
- What will be the efficiency gains and their sharing between the actors vs current situation?
- etc …
Prospective analyses conducted in partnership with automotive, transportation and energy groups.
Since 2016, YKems has carried out several prospective studies in partnership with international groups (Tier1 suppliers, public transport operators and energy sectors):
- Screening and evaluation of the impact of new forms of mobility (car-sharing, carpooling, robotaxis, etc.) on the worldwide sales of private vehicles by 2030, as well as on the evolution of the global car fleet.
- Qualification of the impact of the development of a complete range of NFM on modal shares within a given urban area (see example below).
Our added value: modeling at the service of strategic expertise
For each of these interventions, YKems has developed quantitative models based on transparent and auditable assumptions and calculation mechanisms to highlight the link between input variables (transport demand, population growth, costs, etc.). .) and results obtained.
These models allow us
- To help our clients form their own and fact-based vision of the mobility sector’s development perspective to better capture the validity of the prospective scenarios presented in the numerous publications dealing with this topic;
- To advise them in the design of their strategy by building clear arguments related to the underlying prospective scenarios: orientation of R&D projects, urban transportation policy choices and arbitration between mobility modes, environmental impact analysis of the sector etc. “
