JLL has announced the creation of a new Industrial and Logistics team to deliver a range of investment and occupational solutions inside the M25.

London Industrial and Logistics Solutions will be led by sector veteran Melinda Cross and represents JLL’s focus on this specific geographical market, which has seen a substantial increase in activity since the pandemic. Agency and investment expertise will be fully integrated to provide deep understanding of changing market dynamics for this 2,500 square mile area, with experts focused on particular locations in the capital, for added depth.

JLL highlighted that the new team will deliver all industrial and logistics services including multi-let industrial schemes, big shed logistics, site acquisitions/sales and development expertise, site repurposing, multi-storey and intensification advice and Specialist Occupier Services (SOS).

Melinda Cross, head JLL’s London industrial and logistics solution team, said the creation of the team represents a significant opportunity, “We have created London industrial and logistics solutions to provide clients with a dedicated team to help them tap into the wider JLL network, so they have the right people and services at their disposal at a time when values in London are at their highest and the opportunities are vast. Clients’ London teams are excited to see the formulation of this new team, as it mirrors their own structure, so they know they can work with us seamlessly across every aspect of industrial and logistics in the capital. It is great to hear their enthusiasm for what we are doing and I am thrilled to get cracking!”

Andrew Frost, head of capital markets, JLL explains the focus on London is timely: “The creation of this team under Melinda is another example of our client-focused strategy in action. Inside the M25 is essentially a microcosm market of its own, with specialist urban logistics requirements and differentiated pricing. It’s important to have a team that know that area inside out so that we can bring the fullest extent of JLL’s services and capabilities to those clients and support them at a time when the market is incredibly complex and competitive. Melinda has been with JLL for over 11 years and in this sector for much longer – she and her team are perfectly placed to tap into global capital and leverage our experts across the business, from ESG to asset repositioning to tenant services and everything in between.”
