Total announced acquisitions by Chinese groups of logistics companies in Europe, Asia and elsewhere more than doubled to $32.2bn in the first 11 months of this year, up from $12.9bn in the whole of 2016, according to figures compiled by Grisons Peak, a London-based investment bank.
The moves complement an upsurge in Chinese overseas port acquisitions in the year to June, over which time $20.1bn in nine deals was announced. The geographical distribution of the logistics acquisitions, like the port deals before them, correspond with the area covered by the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), a grandiose project to revamp Silk Road commerce between Asia and Europe.
“In light of the $20bn prior ports investments, it is only logical that China would follow by implementing a strategy of matching the logistics with the ports”
“The economic model China uses for its BRI partners to enhance trade flows involves first providing sufficient energy and infrastructure, leading to increased manufacturing, and then on to ports and logistics”
