Transportation and Logistics
Transportation and logistics is a mature industry dealing with sweeping changes and rising costs on an increasingly global scale. As customer spending moves online, logistics providers are delivering smaller packages to the end customer. This requires heavy investments in technology and large-scale warehouses. Additionally, transportation and logistics is still a relatively fragmented industry and very few companies offer the end-to-end services that customers require. All of these changes are forcing a more seamless, higher-quality delivery solution which creates challenges for industry participants at large.
We partner with transportation and logistics companies to enable technology and automation, support aggressive M&A strategies, identify and implement profitability improvement initiatives and optimize the back office to ensure financial and accounting accuracy. Riveron has deep experience optimizing the entire supply chain to reduce costs and free up cash while enhancing the customer experience transportation and logistics companies must deliver in the modern world.
Key transportation and logistics areas we serve include:
- Warehousing and distribution
- Trucking and rail
- Sea and ports
- Third-party logistics (3PL)
Riveron helps a Building Products Distributor with a CPM implementation, managing the entire process and coming in on time and under budget.
In today’s deal landscape, risk mitigation is critical to closing transactions. During due diligence, workstreams are compartmentalized and assigned to specialists in legal, financial and other subject matters. However, one focus often remains unexamined: the myriad of operationally-driven risk factors that could undermine the deal thesis.
