Transport & Distribution Industry


Avid Partners have worked with a number of transport and distribution organisations over the years and have assisted with everything from expansion strategies to business turnaround programmes. Avid Partners works with clients in many  sectors and proactively help them become more efficient. Specific programmes have included: streamlining businesses for increased profitability, identifying avenues for growth and turnaround strategies for companies being squeezed from an operational perspective. Some sub sectors of the transportation and distribution industry are in expansion mode (air, ferry, private sector coach) while many others remain under pressure (haulage, rail, taxi industry).


The Transport and Distribution sector incorporates a range of company types including logistics, supply chain management, haulage and transportation. The industry is very diverse and made up of a large number of small family run companies as well a small number of very large organisations, usually government and listed companies.

Sector Challenges

The challenges facing companies operating in this sector mirror those of the wider economy but with greater emphasis on a smaller number of key factors:

  • Increasing cost of fuel
  • High operating costs
  • Increasing labour costs
  • Highly unionised sector
  • Reliance of some companies on state subsidies & supports
  • Highly regulated industry
  • Cost of expansion can be significant (capital equipment required)
