Urban & City Logistics

More than the last mile

E-commerce has fundamentally changed the way consumers buy, as well as their expectations for delivery.

Prior to the pandemic, 35% of industrial leasing could be attributed to e-commerce related activities. In 2020 it was recorded that the e-commerce logistics market had grown by 27.3% and is predicted to reach €557bn by 2025.

Urban & City Logistics challenges


Population increase, the need for more housing and higher population densities has increased the demand for delivery options closer to the customer.

Industrial decrease

Loss of industrial land to other uses has resulted in there being limited supply leading to strong industrial rental growth.

Growth of e-commerce

The growth of e-commerce and same-day delivery requirements has resulted in an increasing demand to service a city on the same day.


Government policy and intervention to address pollution and transportation means increasing sustainability legislation has become mandated.
