Leading consulting group with a 360° approach
The same challenges regardless of geography and climate: COWI is specialised in solving transport challenges in remote low-populated areas of the world, e.g. like small arctic settlements or on isolated tropic islands, where there is a low demand for transport and at very high costs.
Typically, aviation as well as shipping are the important modes of transport and land transport is not an option. Low frequencies on air based passenger links and long intervals between arrivals of freight supply vessels, makes it difficult to retain the basic functions of the small societies at reasonable costs. Other distinctive characteristics are that perishable foods are often a luxury in the local stores and only a limited number of income generating tourists visits the community on a yearly basis.
