Dutch logistics hubs well positioned for the future

Amsterdam and Tilburg/Eindhoven/Venlo in top 20 emerging hubs

Logistics hubs Amsterdam and Eindhoven/Tilburg/Venlo are among the twenty emerging hubs in the world. Rotterdam is in the top 30 global hubs; logistics hubs with a global reach. This is one of the conclusions of research conducted by international real estate advisor CBRE.

In its recent research Global and Emerging Logistics Hubs CBRE has analyzed the factors that determine the importance and growth of logistics hubs worldwide. By weighing elements such as infrastructure, accessibility, business climate and market size, 30 global hubs were identified. These hubs are the main driving force behind the industrial real estate market and warrant close attention from the marketplace, as logistics hubs are typically home to large clusters of distribution facilities that are highly sought after by major real estate investors and logistics operators.

Looking at the future we see a number of key conditions for European locations to deflect them as logistical hubs on the map. Technological innovation, business environment, infrastructure and population growth prove to be crucial elements for this, and both owners and developers of logistics real estate and logistics service providers would do well to consider this.
