VLC Europe Ltd was established in early 2021 as Veitch Lister Consulting’s London-based subsidiary.

Operating in a niche market, we solely provide transport planning, data analytics and modelling services with VLC’s competitive advantage lying in the expertise of our team to provide solid advice using a sound evidence-base. We leverage cutting-edge data sources and technologies to provide expertise and custom solutions to complex transport problems. In keeping with our values, we know that trust is earned, and we are open and honest with ourselves and our clients. 

 

VLC Europe is led by Tom van Vuren (Regional Director, UK and Europe), a pre-eminent figure within the transport modelling industry and a thought leader in European transport modelling research and practice. 

 

Claire Stephens is VLC Europe’s Associate Director and a chartered transport planning professional with nearly 20 years’ experience. Reflecting our value of inclusivity, Claire has recently completed a literature review of equality, diversity & inclusion in transport modelling and appraisal, which will underpin all of VLC’s future project delivery in the UK. 

 

Our Work

VLC Europe has delivered advisory services on a number of projects including High Speed 2 and Liverpool City Region, a horizon scan of innovation in modelling and forecasting, building on an international Expert Group for National Highways, and in partnership with City Science we are currently building a strategic transport model to provide an evidence base for Thurrock Council’s Local Plan.  

We hold ISO 9001 Quality Management accreditation for the provision of transport planning, transport modelling, traffic engineering, economic studies, model development services, policy, spatial analytics, GIS, and out-of-home advertising audience measurement.
