Transportation & Logistics - Mergers and Acquisitions

The transportation and logistics sector has played an undeniably essential role throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, creating  growth opportunities for many companies. The surge in e-commerce and online shopping appears to be continuing unabated.

Some players in this area are turning to consolidation as a way to fill the gaps in their operations and improve efficiencies, while others are leveraging M&A as part of their ongoing diversification strategy. For instance, we could see companies attempt to mitigate against disruption issues by expanding and diversifying their supply chains.

Companies in the transportation and logistics sector that want to capitalize on M&A opportunities have to consider a number of different legal issues before moving forward with a deal, from Transport Canada regulations and environmental considerations, to matters related to supply chain agreements and intellectual property.

Having advised on a number of significant M&A transactions in the transportation and logistics sector, Osler’s team is well-positioned to provide companies with the guidance they need to buy or sell a business. With so many issues to consider, it’s important to work with an experienced, knowledgeable firm to ensure you’re making the best move for your company.
