Recent economic reforms, and the increased role of the private sector in transport infrastructure, have emphasised the need for effective economic regulation in creating competitive, market-based transport industries.
Our expertise covers the whole range of regulatory economics. This includes designing regulatory incentives, price reviews and charging structures, efficiency benchmarking, asset valuation, cost of capital assessment, and demand forecasting.
Frontier Economics combines this expertise with a sound knowledge of the transport sector. Advanced quantitative techniques and economic modelling underpin our advice to clients. We help policy makers and regulators devise and refine mechanisms to make markets work, to reward efficient investment, and to provide incentives for operators to serve customers better. We also help regulated companies in established regimes to navigate regulatory reviews and investigations.
Within the transport sector, we have advised a broad range of clients in including state and federal government departments and agencies, regulators and operators.
