Prologis Report: Four tactics how logistics real estate gets the job done
Access to qualified labour and its retention is one of the most talked about topics for logistics real estate operators today. Not only do labour trends impact recruitment and location strategies, but sourcing a loyal workforce is getting harder.
The importance of labour in warehouses has only risen in the past decade. Access to suitable labour in the 12 European countries where we operate is a key requirement for real estate selection. Our latest research focuses on developing a clear picture of the interaction between labour retention and logistics real estate. This study is based on data from our platform of more than 16 million square metres, numerous conversations with many of our roughly 700 unique customers and our own proprietary data.
In this research we also take a closer look at the wide range of real estate investor initiatives around labour like transportation, amenities and installations.
