LOGISTICS & TRADE

In the field of logistics and retail, there is a strong overlap with other sectors Aquin covers. Therefore, Aquin distinguishes between the following sub-sectors:

> Retail and Wholesale
> Logistics
> Packaging

Digitalization and automation of logistical processes have dramatically changed the industry and led to a continuous process of change. The demand for skills to successfully manage this transformation process has led to interdisciplinary M&A transactions in the past. With our many years of experience, particularly in automation technology, we at Aquin have been able to successfully position ourselves and accompany exciting transactions and consulting projects. Our well-established network, with deep ties to the management levels of long-standing logistics and trading companies, as well as the cooperation with our Senior Advisors is critical to winning and successfully implementing new projects.
