Overview

Arcapita has been investing in the logistics sector since 2006 and have overseen investments valued in excess of $800 million in transaction value.

The availability of private equity is transforming the logistics industry, allowing new and existing companies access to the capital needed to invest in people, processes, and technology. Add to this fragmented nature of the global marketplace and the opportunities and costs associated with technology, and it becomes clear why logistics has quickly become a favorite sector of private capital.

Growth in e-commerce as well as increasingly complex and global supply chains are creating significant demand for more efficient, value-added logistics and warehousing services. In addition to rapid delivery requirements, there are increasing security concerns. As a result, companies are increasingly outsourcing complex supply chain activities to specialized operators. Given our track record in this sector and the positive returns generated by previous investments such as PODS and 3PD, our Private Equity team continues to seek opportunities in the 3PL, freight-forwarding, last-mile delivery, and contract logistics sub-sectors.
