Since this blog is focused on impact of online sales on logistic real estate , let us explore it in more details. Online sales have penetrated like never before even in areas such as food, household items, sports & DIY items where traditionally online sales were lower.

The ever increasing demanding deadlines and flexibility to manager with maximum efficiency the first and last mile delivery which are demanded by customers from companies are key to its business success. Hence it is common for logistics real estate to be present close to urban area to quicken delivery times. Consumers demand due to change in shopping habits immediate deliveries.

This has led to establishment of smaller micro hubs very close to cities which are able to handle high number of orders in a short span of time but with fewer references than in larger warehouses which are away from the cities. Typically, this hub is established in a range of 20km radius of main logistic parks.

While these micro hubs are able to deliver on time, the problem is in their scarcity and high cost of land. It is precisely for this reason that an infrastructure should be in place which optimizes its use. Warehouse managers want the process to be easy and agile with stock management and that stored goods find a balance between maximum storage capacity and operational efficiency.
