Warehouses for online retail

Colliers International experts note an increase in the share of online stores in the absorption of high-quality storage facilities. According to the results of the III quarter of 2012 of the year, it amounted to approximately 10% and allowed online retailers to enter the top 5 of tenants who concluded the most significant transactions in the warehouse segment since the beginning of 2012 of the year.

According to Colliers International, online trading turnover in 2011 year in Europe as a whole increased by 18% and amounted to 200 billion euros. 70% of the turnover was in the markets of three countries: Germany, Great Britain and France. At the same time, experts note a significant development of electronic commerce in Eastern Europe.

It should be borne in mind that the format of electronic commerce provides for the exclusion of a number of intermediaries between the merchant and the buyer.
