The Swedish Transport Administration : Creating a better railway for Sweden by managing capacity more effectively

The Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket) manages the country’s road and rail infrastructure. There are approximately 50 train companies (goods and people) operating on 14,000 km of track and volumes of traffic are growing. Trafikverket started a programme to improve traffic planning and optimize capacity.

Our team supported the programme director, bringing best practice project management processes to Trafikverket’s existing approach. We created a programme management office to direct planning, budgeting, risk management, change management, resourcing and communication during the sourcing and procurement process of the future Capacity Planning System. This gave project managers reliable information they could use to make decisions about timescales, cost and outputs and then share that with the rest of the organisation.

Our team also supported Trafikverket in procuring the new IT system for managing capacity planning. We used our sourcing expertise to make sure the process was competitive and followed the relevant legislation. Once the supplier was agreed, we made sure the contract was suitable and fair. Our specialist knowledge meant the process was quick and effective and Trafikverket secured a flexible system they can tailor to business needs over its life span.
