The CFIE M&A team helps buyers in acquisitions. In this case most of the work is done upfront and consists in sourcing a large number of interesting targets for an acquisition. CFIE has a broad set of contacts across the Polish and European forwarding industry. These contacts range from business owners to M&A advisors or other specialists in the forwarding field. CFIE does the communication to targets and explains business owners why it is a good decision to grow further with a strong strategic partner. Govert Derks has spoken to the forwarding company and has elaborated on the buyers strategy. After initiating the talks and negotiations between the forwarding target company and the buyer CFIE facilitated the further process by supporting the forwarding buyer. The buyer has quite some practical experience in the process of acquisitions of forwarding companies and worked reasonably independently on the further process. In this process it was supported in the background by the CFIE forwarding M&A team
