Automotive, Transport & Logistics Sector Analysis

Welcome to our first ever ‘Shaw Report’ into the Automotive, Transport & Logistics (ATL) sector which provides the industry’s SME business leaders with a powerful benchmarking tool to aid their decision making. 

"In this report we have segmented 2,202 ATL businesses with earnings of £1m+ by size and subsector to track their performance, profitability, debt levels and M&A activity."
Colin Burns
Director - Debt Advisory, Shaw & Co

Larger blue-chip corporates have regular access to this type of analysis from investment banking advisers. However, it is our mission to provide SME business leaders with free access to the same market intelligence in a clear, concise and easy-to-use way.

This report will help you benchmark your performance relative to the sector. It will also provide you with valuable insight regarding your relative creditworthiness and attractiveness from a M&A point of view. 

Key findings

  • Covid-19: We see some sub-sectors, particularly automotive, shouldering the burden of a 10%-20% drop in sales revenue which places enormous pressure on short-term trading. This may require some debt restructuring and will present alternative lenders an opportunity to bridge the gap left by the traditional lenders for longer term loans for SMEs.
  • Partnerships: We expect working partnerships to increase between automotive manufacturers and logistics providers based on anticipated growth rates in the sector and a return of normalised supply chains post-Covid.
  • Mergers & Acquisitions: Very buoyant M&A market with double the volume of transactions compared to the prior year. Strong international buyer demand for quality UK businesses regardless of size or location.
  • Borrowing: There is now a significant opportunity for alternative lenders to bridge the gap left by the traditional lenders for longer term loans for SMEs.
  • Funding Capacity: A good ATL business with solid growth plans could be borrowing up to four times its earnings (Ebitda) for growth projects and acquisitions.
