E-Commerce Breathes Life into Secondary Industrial Markets

Returns for industrial real estate have been close to the highest of all property types. But is there room to grow? Signs are pointing to yes, due to e-commerce’s contribution. With the ability to track, store, analyze and apply information, more efficiencies will be built into supply chains. Online retailers keep higher levels of inventories, have a wider range of products, and support direct-to-consumer shipping and returns, which translates to a need for more space. Given consumers’ penchant for immediacy of product delivery, demand for secondary industrial markets that are located closer to people are expected to emerge.
