Prologis is Building for the Future

Our objective has always been to be closest to the consumption side of the logistics supply chain. 

In 2018, we completed Prologis Georgetown Crossroads in Seattle—the first multistory logistics facility in the United States and an excellent example of our commitment to customer-centric innovation. We also completed a conversion of an existing multistory building in the Bronx. Forward-looking projects like these demonstrate our commitment to doing everything we can for our customers—even in constrained urban locations.

Customer-Centric Innovation and Technology

Our scale enables us to invest in technology as we continue to seek solutions to help our customers run their businesses as efficiently as possible. Prologis Labs is a dedicated space for testing new products and services designed to ease our customers’ pain points. This recent investment in customer-centric innovation allows us to cycle quickly through ideas, invest in the winners and then scale those solutions across our global portfolio.

Prologis Labs is currently focusing on:

  • Digital supply chain/digital warehouse
  • Attributes of the next-generation distribution center
  • Transportation
  • Urban fulfillment

Sustainability is in Our DNA

Environmental stewardship, social responsibility and governance have been key tenets of Prologis’ business practices for decades. In 2018, we launched the Prologis Community Workforce Initiative (CWI), an extension of our commitment to deliver superior customer service while strengthening local communities. Through CWI, Prologis collaborates with local workforce programs to provide mentorship, skills training, internships and job placement services for people interested in pursuing careers in logistics, distribution and transportation—sectors currently experiencing a significant labor shortage. In addition to serving our customers, the initiative is structured to enhance local economies and help create career opportunities in the communities where we do business.

2018 was a year of ESG firsts at Prologis. In addition to CWI, we were the first logistics real estate company in the world to:

  • Achieve WELL Certification, per the International Well Building Institute
  • Receive an approved Science-Based Target (SBT) for greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction
  • Receive the Gold Green Lease Leader Award
  • Issue green bonds globally  

A Culture for Continued Success

Our global teams come to work every day with the mindset of: How can we contribute to our customers’ success? Creating value for those we serve is integrated into everything we do, big and small.

As an organization, we push boundaries and explore new horizons to stay ahead of what’s next. We embrace change. Together, we ask “why” and trust that discomfort and setbacks are part of success.

We listen, question, then commit to each other. Together as one team, we actively seek and leverage different perspectives, challenge our own best ideas and commit to a common goal. We simplify and sprint, and trust that speed and agility will drive results. We do not let perfection get in the way of progress.
