LeighFisher is a global, multi-modal and interdisciplinary practice delivering system-based solutions leveraging all surface transportation modes, including highways and toll roads, mass transit and intercity passenger and freight rail. The common element to the intermodal practice is a focus on the passengers and goods that move from their points of origin to their destinations.
Over the last four decades, total seaborne trade has quadrupled, driven largely by increased transportation of bulk cargo – grains, minerals, fuels, and chemicals. The switch to containerization has been rapid and widespread and continues to dominate global flows.
LeighFisher has extensive freight and logistics expertise across a wide spectrum of markets and modes. Our team provides professional consulting services for private and public sector clients, offering an analytical foundation and in-depth industry knowledge based on which we develop operational and strategic recommendations that address our clients’ immediate and long term needs.
LeighFisher is an industry leader in transportation infrastructure master planning. We use a collaborative approach with our clients to define their vision for future airport facilities, and ways to achieve that vision. We do not apply the same approach to every master plan because we recognize that each situation is unique.
LeighFisher provides advice to clients on revenues, costs, design, construction, financing, operation, maintenance and procurement. Our advice is grounded in an understanding of how toll roads really operate (a significant proportion of our work is on toll roads that are already operational) and what the market needs in terms of making an investment decision.
