Changes in the logistics properties market
As a result of ever further global division of labour, the boom in e-commerce, improved global economic conditions and a strong domestic market, the dynamics of the logistics industry and the demand for logistic space is unbroken. With a value of around €265bn, the German market is by far the biggest in Europe. As a centrally located export nation with well developed infrastructure, Germany is increasingly becoming an international hub for logistics. The constant progress of digital and technological development is changing demand patterns, supply chains and logistical processes. These changes force change in logistics properties.
The challenges arising in the industry and the valuation of logistics property include:
· what will be required of logistics properties in the future?
· what kind of properties will be needed in the future?
· which locations will be demanded by users and investors?
· what criteria do properties have to fulfil?
· Which properties will be usable in the long-term?
