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. According to the 2011 results, the online sales market, for example, in Poland grew by 34% and took the leading position in the region.

“The increase in the share of tenants working in the online retail segment is likely to lead to a change in requests for warehouse space. 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. Companies operating in e-commerce are striving to create a unified distribution center, which includes receiving products from suppliers, storing, sorting and packaging, reducing the time for delivering an order to a client and optimizing the process of returning goods, ”emphasizes the director of the warehouse and industrial real estate department at Colliers International Vladislav Ryabov.

Colliers International experts note that retailers working in the traditional format are gradually introducing options such as home delivery or ordering goods at distribution points, which directly affects the choice of storage and distribution of products.
