UK Logistics Sector M&A Index 2021


Logistics UK and CBW are pleased to present our second annual M&A report for the UK logistics sector, following its launch last year.


In conjunction with the leading independent research firm, Analytiqa, we have undertaken our annual survey of companies’ expectations for mergers & acquisitions (“M&A”) activity in the logistics sector over the next twelve months.


The results have been extremely encouraging, given the UK economy continues to be impacted by Covid-19 and Brexit. They reflect a logistics industry that has largely weathered the storm of the last 18 months successfully, is increasingly confident and has a growing appetite for M&A as a strategic priority.




You can also watch a video of CBW's Head of Logistics and Corporate Finance, Philip Bird, and David Wells, Chief Executive of Logistics UK, discussing the results of the survey on our launch webinar.
