Transport and Distribution

transport-distributionThe Transport and Distribution sector is currently one of the UK’s strongest performing sectors. This flourishing market has seen an increase in investment activity due to a growing consumer demand through changing retail patterns and an increasingly buoyant economy. Key trends in the market are:

  • Activity in the Transport and Distribution market has increased over the past 2 years, partly due to the boom of e-commerce and high quality expectations from consumers on delivering goods and aided by the falling price of oil
  • In 2015, 87 deals took place in the UK and Eurozone in the Transport and Distribution sector, including major deals in the South-East of England such as the acquisition of Seafast Holdings by Uniserve, the Management Buy-Out of Whistl and the secondary buy-out of CitySprint by LDC
  • The consolidation of regional logistics hubs driving delivery efficiencies is likely to be one of the major trends for the next few years
