Next Generation Logistics
From big box logistics in urban peripheries to infill, multiple-story and mixed-use, what is the future shape of a logistics building? Understanding the global trends (urbanization, pollution, changing needs) driving these changes will help us understand how logistics needs may further integrate into our daily/urban lives. What practical implications do these changes have on the sector, the new risks that may arise, and our approach to valuations?
Innovation in Logistics
Logistics buildings are getting smarter and more efficient. This topic will explore not only new technologies inside the building, but also innovations within the sector, such as supply chain collaboration, digital logistics and 'elastic' logistics, and how data utilization can transform asset management efficiency. Our goal is to better understand how these various aspects of innovation impact asset value.
Valuing Green Buildings
Green logistics is a subset of innovation, but one which is more established in the sector. Many new logistics facilities include sustainability features and/or offer wellness programmes. Green investment opportunities are in high demand. How should we consider the value (and lower obsolescence risk) of new green buildings relative to earlier generation logistics. How do less quantitative sustainability features factor into asset value?
