A record year for the logistics industry is behind us – now it’s time to build on the future
The unchecked growth of online trade is bringing vital movement to the logistics investment market. Current analyses confirm a record result in 2021, and the forecasts for 2022 are also positive. The general dynamics in the logistics segment of the DACH region and the long-term leases with first-class tenants are the decisive attributes for our logistics portfolio. In this context, we are essentially focusing on two important criteria: Location and changing requirements.
Ideal locations, especially those with direct access to major traffic arteries, are more in demand than ever. In Austria, demand now exceeds supply. Due to the strong local industry as well as the excellent infrastructure, urban logistics real estate in the locations of Vienna, Graz, Salzburg and Linz are coming into focus. The demand for distribution centres as well as central areas for city hubs is increasing.
The modern logistics industry therefore also demands innovative, future-proof concepts. Because with increasing globalization and digitalization, the requirements in the field of logistics real estate are also becoming more and more complex. Intelligent concepts aimed at efficient process flows, high flexibility of use and sustainable building planning, ecological standards and energy efficiency will determine the quality of properties to the greatest extent in the future.
With our universal view, broad range of services and depth of service, we exploit the value creation potential of modern logistics locations and offer tenants an attractive environment with promising prospects for the future.
