          The transport sector is undergoing major change driven by regulation and developments in technology, and now has the added challenge of responding to the implications of the UK’s exit from the EU.

          From the delivery of new infrastructure to the adoption of new technologies, transport is at the core of economies all around the world. Developments such as driverless vehicles and the concept of mobility as a service will transform our lives and impact businesses’ transport and logistics requirements - as well as the commuting habits of staff. Investment in infrastructure such as high-speed rail and additional runway capacity will be complimented by initiatives to rebalance the economy such as the Northern Powerhouse and City Deals.

          ”The DWF Team were very responsive to the issue we faced and provided essential support alongside key industry knowledge in resolving what could have become a very challenging situation. Their professionalism, support and one team approach assisted us in resolving the issues we faced and made them a pleasure to work alongside rather than with.”
          – Gareth Brewerton, General Counsel, South Staffordshire Plc
