From Sheds to Shelves

From Sheds to Shelves

The emergence of retail logistics as a new type of property investment reflects wholesale changes in the way people shop and the way retailers do business. 

Britain leads Europe in its composition of prime retail and logistics assets, driven by the highest demand in Europe for e-commerce with at least 15% of sales now made online. We expect this to rise to at least 20% by 2020, which reflects similar forecasts in many other established global markets.

Continental Europe is not far behind, with online sales in Germany at over 11%, followed by the Netherlands, France and Nordic markets. The rapidly evolving CEE markets led by Poland and the Czech Republic are helping to drive European online sales to over 8% of all retail activity, ahead of the US.
