Global transportation and logistics deals insights - Q1 2018

The global Transportation and Logistics (T&L) sector reported 61 deals in Q1 2018. While deal value increased by 114%, deal volume declined by 12%, over the same quarter of last year. Passenger Ground and Passenger Air accounted for the value increase, mainly driven by a single megadeal, the joint bid of Atlantia SpA  and ACS/Hochtief AG for Spanish road transportation operator Abertis Infraestructuras SA  (deal value $22.5 billion).

Shipping led the volume decline, experiencing a 50% year on year decline in the number of deals.
