Third-party logistics (3PL) providers are becoming increasingly attractive investments for private equity firms. Supply chains are vital to the global economy, the market is extremely fragmented, and there is currently an inefficient use of technology assets, leaving a great deal of opportunity for potentially lucrative investments in 3PLs that serve middle-market customers given their potential for expansion within the industry.
New ownership in this area could lead to big changes for customers and suppliers alike, including new practices, consolidation and hopefully growth. To explore these opportunities and potential changes, FreightWaves and Redwood Logistics will be partnering to host a one-hour webinar on Tuesday, February 5, at 2pm ET. Mark Yeager, CEO at Redwood and Senior Advisor for CI Capital Partners, is well-versed in the role that private equity is playing in logistics company building and will join the conversation to share his perspectives on what these acquisitions could mean for the industry.
The webinar will feature insights around:
• What is driving increased M&A activity in the transportation and logistics industry
• What these acquisitions mean for the companies involved and how they can lead to greater efficiency and profitability
• How suppliers and customers can capitalize on these changes
