We consider percolation and jamming transitions for particulate systems exposed to compression. For the systems built of particles interacting by purely repulsive forces in addition to friction and viscous damping, it is found that these transitions are influenced by a number of effects, and in particular by the compression rate. In a quasistatic limit, we find that for the considered type of interaction between the particles, percolation and jamming transitions coincide. For cohesive systems, however, or for any system exposed to even slow dynamics, the differences between the considered transitions are found and quantified.
