UK Logistics M&A Index Q1 2021

April 2021

Carter Backer Winter LLP (CBW) and Logistics UK, in conjunction with the leading independent logistics research firm Analytiqa, have undertaken an interim survey of companies’ expectations for mergers & acquisitions (M&A) activity in the sector over the next 12 months.

The survey, an interim update to the annual survey, first published in September 2020, involves senior executives within logistics companies in the UK and provides a view on expected trends in M&A, including valuations, and also touches on some of the most important issues facing companies in the sector, particularly in light of Covid-19 and Brexit.

The Index number for this survey is 55.7 – up from 45.4 in the inaugural survey in September 2020. We believe that this represents a significant increase in appetite for M&A activity, and a more optimistic outlook for the sector in the context of the impact of Brexit, continuing uncertainty around the effects of Covid-19 and challenges facing the global economy.
