Global transportation and logistics deals insights: Q3 2017

M&A activity in the global transportation and logistics (T&L) sector continued to be robust in Q3 2017 after a significant pick up in Q2 2017. Overall, the sector reported 71 transactions worth $43.3 billion, and experienced the second highest level of quarterly deal volume and value in the last three years. Q3 2017 also reported 5 of the 10 largest T&L deals of 2017.

Structural changes in the Shipping sector continued to drive M&A activity in that sector, and the recently announced acquisition of Orient Overseas International by China’s Cosco Shipping for $6.3 billion suggests that consolidation is set to continue.

Asia and Oceania continued to be the largest geographic region in terms of deal volume and value.
