Introducing FCP

Established in 1996, First Class Partnerships (FCP) delivers trusted advice across the transport sector. Our roots are in the British rail industry but our transport consulting is international. We deliver a powerful combination of real-life operations experience and advanced consulting skills and techniques.

Our clients rely on FCP to enhance their identification, planning and implementation of wide-ranging transport initiatives and developments including intercity and high-speed, heavy-haul, light rail, metros, commuter rail, bus and coach. We advise governments, operators, investors, regulators and suppliers.

We have a record of delivering innovative technical, commercial and management strategies globally. Our current clients have engaged FCP across North & South America, Europe, Australasia and Africa.

In late 2020, FCP joined the CPCS Group.
