E-commerce generates leasing activity and reports new requirements

Tom Listowski, partner, dyrektor Działu Powierzchni Przemysłowych i Magazynowych na Europę Środkowo-Wschodnią w firmie Cresa.

In 2018, the industrial market was driven by e-commerce which - in addition to generating strong take-up levels - reported new requirements regarding warehouse location and technical specifications, says Tom Listowski, Partner, Head of Industrial and Warehouse, CEE, Cresa.

In 2018, warehouse demand came mainly from brick-and-mortar and online retail, logistics and light manufacturing. The market was, however, driven largely by the exponential growth of e-commerce. In addition to main fulfilment centres, online retailers seek ways to optimize and shorten delivery times, hence the growing popularity of Small Business Units close to large city centres. Urban warehouse parks also feature comfortable office spaces and showrooms that serve as exhibition space or click-and-collect points. Such formats also attract start-ups and courier companies needing small, modern units in urban areas.
