PTV Group and Arcadis partner to enhance mobility solutions in the urban environment

Decision makers will benefit from a unique blend of expertise and know-how

Karlsruhe/ Amsterdam 15.05.2019. PTV Group market leader in software solutions for traffic and logistics and Arcadis the leading Design & Consultancy organization for natural and built assets, join forces to best support cities in future mobility challenges. The cooperation agreement has been signed in Amsterdam.

There is a huge opportunity to rethink the way that cities are planned and managed, drawing on contemporary knowledge of internet of things, connected vehicles, environmental monitoring, traffic control systems, incident management, and building information modelling (BIM) to develop and strengthen synergies. 

Arcadis and PTV are collaborating to untap the potential to reshape the way that mobility data is used to plan and manage future mobility needs of people living in cities. Decision makers will benefit from a unique blend of expertise and know-how, methods and tools to establish new mobility concepts. Simulations of different scenarios can be run faster and more efficiently. The partnership will help both organizations to evolve thinking and develop a practical roadmap to deliver future urban mobility strategy.

There is strong demand worldwide for state-of-the art technology in the field of mobility. The PTV modelling software is used in over 120 countries. Vehicle manufacturers, service providers, logistics service providers, technology suppliers and urban planners are all interested in new mobility services that re-think mobility as a service (MaaS). PTV has developed an integrated platform for the delivery of MaaS covering a portfolio of technologies, from planning to operation and control. Arcadis is developing MaaS for the central business district of Amsterdam.

“Arcadis is excited to partner with PTV to discover additional ways that mobility data can be leveraged in planning and managing future urban mobility requirements,” Stephan Ritter, Arcadis Group Executive Innovation and Transformation, says. “Our unique blend of management consultancy and engineering capability complements PTV’s cutting edge transport modelling technology. Together we aim to provide enhanced mobility solutions to our clients, as well as strengthen our urban strategy and disrupt the field of global transportation modelling.”

Vincent Kobesen, CEO of the PTV Group adds: “We are committed to promoting mobility in our cities through strategic partnerships at international level - from urban development to specific transport concepts. The partnership with Arcadis is an important milestone as it combines world-class software and consulting services.”
