Distribution and Logistics

As e-commerce, technology and R&D sectors continue to evolve, the UK’s distribution and logistics market is adapting to meet the increasing demand for developed space.

E-commerce is becoming a driving force for generating demand for a new type and range of logistical outlets, from large regional fulfilment centres to smaller urban depots for last mile delivery. Such outlets require close proximity to the UK’s strategic road network in order to meet growing customer needs.

With logistics’ space requirements changing, this creates the need to sustainably regenerate existing brownfield sites, whilst placing emphasis on helping businesses to achieve net zero carbon by 2050.
