Cinven – Outsouced Logistics Assessment

Cinven is a Client of The Logistics Business - Leading Locistics ConsultancyCinven is a leading European Private Equity firm that acquires successful, high-quality companies and works with them to help them grow and develop. As businesses that Cinven identifies as potential for acquisition are put up of for sale it brings together teams of advisers to investigate the company in detail. This will cover a wide range of matters from current strengths and weaknesses to investment requirements to achieve the levels of growth that Cinven is seeking. For one particular acquisition involved in food distribution, Cinven turned to The Logistics Business to join its team and advise on the logistics aspects of the company, in particular, to provide an outsourced logistics assessment.

For one particular acquisition involved in food distribution, Cinven turned to The Logistics Business to join its team and advise on the logistics aspects of the company, in particular, to provide an outsourced logistics assessment. The project involved visiting most of the Company’s distribution centres to make an assessment of their efficiency and capacity for growth.  Where this assessment judged that there was insufficient capacity, time phased plans were developed to demonstrate the levels of investment needed to meet the growth requirements. The work also involved liaising with other team members looking at other aspects of the business such as IT.

Finally The Logistics Business joined a question and answer session where it was able to quiz the management team on its view of the business and its future potential. The Logistics Business compiled its findings and presented these to Cinven to include in its overall due diligence report.
