Paris, with a population of 12.5 million consumers, is among Europe’s largest logistics markets. The city commands one-third of France’s total GDP. Its economy is driven by financial, business and IT services.
A thriving center of global commerce, Paris serves as headquarters to 25 Fortune 500 companies—the third-highest concentration after Tokyo and Beijing. As such, much of the demand for industrial real estate and warehouse property in Paris is driven by local consumption.
Supply chain reconfiguration, ignited by the astronomic growth of e-commerce, is a key theme. Modernization of the supply chain is essential to ensure that distribution capabilities align with consumer expectations.
Paris is also an active regional and European industrial logistics market. Home to Europe’s second-largest inland port and second-largest air cargo hub, Paris is an ideal location for customers with local, French and Pan-European industrial warehouse and property needs.
Prologis is the largest provider of industrial warehouse property in France.
