Logistics has emerged as the great winner from the pandemic, while travel restrictions and the surge in e-commerce demand have highlighted the importance of strong supply chains and good transport infrastructure. As life slowly returns to normal, what does the future look like? What lessons has the experience of the last year taught us? How will changes in demand, technology, infrastructure and supply chains influence logistic real estate? Events such as Brexit and the lack of truck drivers and the Suez Canal blockage have led to shortages in the shops and have shown how fragile transport infrastructure can be. What can be done to make it more resilient? What are the main risks to the sector? Brexit so far has hindered trade: was it just teething problems? What will the impact of Brexit be in the medium to long term? Will it benefit the logistics sector in Continental Europe? Technology has changed the logistics sector already, but what innovations are still to come? Will driverless vehicles, drones, artificial intelligence and robotics influence the choice of locations? How can companies meet demand for last-mile delivery hubs? Are the large developers and operators destined to dominate, or are there opportunities for niche players as well? Which countries are likely to benefit the most from the boom in logistics? What are the main differences between markets? In which countries is scarcity of product becoming an issue? Speculative development is back: what are the prospects? What about build-to-suit?
