RPG Crouch Chapman and Logistics UK, in conjunction with Analytiqa, are delighted to publish the fourth edition of the UK Logistics Mergers & Acquisition report.
These results draw on the insights of senior executives within logistics companies in the UK to provide a view on expected trends in M&A, including valuations and the outlook for activity in the year ahead.
The disruption caused by the pandemic continues to cast a long shadow, the war in Ukraine, double digit inflation, higher interest rates and disruptions to shipping in the Red Sea and Suez Canal have all added pressure on logistics companies and global supply chains resulting in an understandably cautious market.
However, logistics businesses remain optimistic about the future of M&A activity across the sector in the next 12 months.
