One of the hottest national topics at the moment is retail and consumer goods. Many have speculated on where this space is going and how consumers are going to physically get their goods in the years to come. What some might not understand is that this is not so much a retail conversation as it is a logistics conversation. Logistics plays a role in our everyday life. Virtually everything we possess came from somewhere to get to you. The goal for many companies is to mitigate the time at which it takes, and to provide real-time data on where the product is the moment you buy it. One such company is XPO. Rich Duprey goes on to say “The logistics and trucking leader just launched XPO Direct, a shared-space distribution model that lets online and offline retailers use its technology, trucks, and workforce to narrow the distance between themselves and their customers.” Logistics is industrial and industrial is logistics. The two are inseparable. The aim of this program is to hear both sides of the coin and to learn how the two are working in tandem in Seattle. Questions about the event content? Please email Chris Wainwright
1) How does the current national and local economy and workforce affect the industrial market today?
2) How have e-commerce and advances in logistics impacted industrial development and design, and is that going to continue to drive demand for warehouse/distribution space?
3) How will new development requirements in sustainability and innovation influence the future of the market?
4) What is going to slow down industrial real estate? Locally and nationally?
5) Due to the abundance of new, well-equipped, premium space under construction, are asking rates going to continue to go up, or flatten out as the new supply is absorbed?
