What are the Trends Driving Demand Amongst Logistics Occupiers?

Logistics markets in Europe are linked to a range of demand drivers associated with a variety of industries, economic and demographic factors, and structural drivers.

– Strong trade growth has led to expansion of supply chains, which in turn has helped drive demand for logistics real estate.

– European exports continue to expand, boosted by broad based economic growth. The economic recovery in Europe, albeit mixed and volatile post-Brexit, suggests the economy still has considerable momentum.

– The Eurozone has experienced the strongest growth in a decade with the outlook indicating continued above trend growth.
