North America

CPCS Transcom is a management consulting firm specializing in transportation sector strategy, economic analysis and policy. Formerly the consulting arm of the Canadian Pacific Railway (consulting group established in 1969), CPCS has evolved into an independent (1986) employee-owned professional services firm, with an established track record of providing clear, high quality advice on strategic transportation and related policy and planning matters.

"The North American Division has grown over the past decade into an experienced multidisciplinary team of economics, finance, business analytics, and geographic information systems professionals. Our team is ready to solve even the most challenging business problems in transportation – objectively, strategically, and communicated clearly."

Marc-Andre Roy
VP North American Division

Visualizations

CPCS reports and working papers make extensive use of visualization techniques – notably maps and related graphics – to communicate findings. CPCS has a reputation for using clear and simple language, and supporting visuals to communicating otherwise very complex subject matter. 

PORTFOLIO

CPCS’s North American Division has led over 250 assignments in Canada and the US over the last few years. A selection of these are summarized below, with links providing further detail.
