WASHINGTON, D.C.—APCO Worldwide has introduced APCO Radius, a new offering aimed at anticipating and addressing the challenges of transportation projects at every stage, from planning, site selection and funding to construction, opening and commercial operations. The offering provides best practices related to crisis communication, government relations, land use, media relations and alliance-development services.
“Many important transportation and infrastructure projects are already in the early planning stages or beginning construction in the United States and around the world,” said Wes Irvin, a former senior official at the U.S. Department of Transportation, who now serves as head of APCO’s transportation and infrastructure practice. “These ‘must-build’ projects are a vital part of the circulatory system of any economy. APCO Radius is designed to help keep these important projects on track through their lifecycles, even as they encounter challenges at points along the way.”
In addition to the Radius offering, APCO’s transportation and infrastructure team facilitates crucial transportation industry issues, including reauthorization, overall infrastructure policy and contract procurement. APCO’s team has direct experience with rail, public transportation, maritime, highway, aviation, land-use and many other areas of transportation and infrastructure.
