Long but interesting analysis of the current wave of merger and acquisition activity taking place in the logistics industry. DC Velocity has surveyed a company chief executives in Asia, North America and Europe and found that, although they expect major M& A activity in the coming year, paradoxically many have brought a halt to their own activity for three mains reasons: companies they might have targeted for acquisition were overpriced; caution of post-acquisition integration problems; and finally the fact that many believed their companies had already reached the desired scale and that further acquisitions were unnecessary unless they offered an immediate market niche or expanded their company’s geographic footprint.
