Transportation & Logistics

Industry leaders in T&L

Transportation and Logistics companies are complex. At Stillwater, we have proved repeatedly that we understand the dynamics of the industry across all of its niches - our track record speaks for itself.


We Are Industrious.

Industrials are an example of a very broad industry group. It is highly sensitive to economic market conditions and factors such as profitability and availability of credit. For that reason, it is absolutely vital for businesses seeking M&A advice in the industry to have someone that knows the ins and outs of the sector by their side, to help guide them through to a successful close.


Distribution at its Finest.

The Wholesale Distribution industry is large and fragmented. Limited margins and expansion opportunities, slipping market share, regulatory constraints, and structural impediments are just some of the obstacles that distribution companies face on a daily basis. Growing a company within the industry is often achieved by acquisition - and we know there's nothing better than having experts by your side when the time comes to take that step.

— Access a Powerful Global Network

We are a member of the Geneva Capital Group, the fifth-largest professional service organization in the world with over 26,000 people in every key economic region.
