The Covid-19 pandemic not only strained global logistics and freight delivery systems, it underscored how critical they are—and, to some extent, how vulnerable. Even before the pandemic hit, companies were mapping new strategies to cope with labor shortages, fluctuating fuel prices, disruptive competitors, sustainability concerns, regulatory demands, and many other challenges. The pandemic amplified the urgency around all these issues, ushering in a new normal that has yet to normalize.
Our experience in this highly fragmented industry is both broad and deep: Our freight and logistics consultants work with companies in every sub-sector, including express, parcel and postal services, trucking, 3PL, rail, transport infrastructure, ocean shipping, and distribution, to enhance every facet of operations and find opportunities for growth and superior performance.

Merger & AcquisitionMerger & Acquisition
Le aziende vincenti nel campo delle fusioni e acquisizioni riescono tipicamente a coniugare decisioni audaci con il rigore necessario per valutare le implicazioni positive ed i rischio di ogni acquisizione. La nostre ricerche su scala mondiale, e su tutte le industrie, mostrano come gli acquirenti seriali godono tipicamente di rendimenti più elevati delle aziende passive.
