We are the partner of choice to support commercial due diligence of logistics assets, trusted by corporate acquirers, investors and multinational vendors.
Robust, independent commercial due diligence is a critical part of any successful merger or acquisition. It is more than an assessment of risk, we believe it’s about validating the business plan and strategy which is critical to achieving long term commercial success. Our deep sector expertise, market understanding and reputation as an industry thought leader underpins our strength in this area.
Drewry acts as a commercial due diligence expert on both the buy side (acquisitions or financing due diligence) or the sell side commercial due diligence of specialised logistics assets such as container barge services, inland river or rail terminals and port-based warehouse assets. Customers rely on our experience of international shipping and intermodal transport, our knowledge of logistics providers’ competition, costs and prices, our contacts with many logistics customers and our unbiased independent position.
These services complement the commercial due diligence services of Drewry concerning ports and ships.
Since 2010 we have completed hundreds of commercial due diligence assignments supporting port M&A and financing projects with combined values of more than $20bn.
