Logistics and warehouse real estate
As more and more people switch to buying goods online, in the last ten years, we have seen huge growth in investment in logistics assets – distribution centres and warehouses. And the sector continues to grow not only as more and more e-commerce brands enter the market.
Brands like Amazon don’t stand still – it’s a cornerstone of their success that they’re able to move with the times – but it also means that they need to be flexible and agile. Owning warehouses doesn’t give them this, but leasing does. For smaller e-commerce companies, leasing is a less risky and less capital-intensive option. It all adds up to opportunity for commercial real estate investors.
