The mobility sector (transportation, logistics and infrastructure) in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein is currently facing extensive modernization. A general theme in this modernization is digitization, environmentally friendly mobility, cross sector solutions and optimization, so that existing as well as future infrastructure can handle the intensified and intensifying use, combined with the need to accommodate political and regulatory framework conditions.

In other words, substantial investments within hardware as well as software are expected in the nearest future - from railroads to digital solutions that combined should be part of solving current and future challenges in the mobility sector in the DACH region. 

Especially in Germany, there is currently a demand for possibilities to make the mobility sustainable in the future. This opens opportunities for export of Danish solutions, may it be within road, rail, ship or air transport. 

In the coming years Deutsche Bahn will conduct a general digitalization of the infrastructure. Also in Austria and Switzerland large sums are being invested in the railroad infrastructure, while Liechtenstein also plans on a larger modernization in the near future. 

Mobility is traditionally an area under great influence of national authorities. The critical infrastructure is mainly owned, operated and managed by the federal states. In Germany almost 90% of the railroad infrastructure belong to the state owned Deutsche Bahn. It is with other words often the public authorities and stakeholders that are the relevant stakeholders for Danish companies within mobility, when exporting to Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

In especially Germany, Austria and Switzerland, numerous authorities are involved in ´large as well as small mobility projects. This is mainly due to the federal structures of the countries, where the decision-making is divided between many levels. 

The Trade Council’s mobility team at the Danish embassy in Berlin assists Danish companies in finding exactly the right players, whether public or private that might be a future partner in the DACH region. The team has close contact to the political actors and is specialized in exactly the public affairs competences that are needed to get Danish companies established in the German market. 

A project in within the mobility sector can for instance encompass: 

  • Market analyses
  • Competitor analyses
  • Monitoring and analyses of political areas and processes
  • Stakeholder management
  • Partner searches
  • Public affairs events - from political round tables to conferences and network meetings
