Global Warehousing & Logistics Networks 2016


Ti’s new report Global Warehousing & Logistics Networks 2016 examines the shifting landscape of supply chain real estate and the changing patterns of distribution on a global basis. Throughout the logistics industry, economic pressures, the rise of the global middle class, the increasing importance of emerging markets as both manufacturing locations and end markets, as well as the growth of e-commerce, are fundamentally changing the shape and character of logistics networks. As a result, logistics service providers and the retailers and manufacturers they support must reassess not only how to best design their logistics facilities to meet requirements, but also where to position network locations to meet demand and commercial imperatives.

Key Findings

  • The evolution of global supply chain networks is behind the shifting landscape on which logistics real estate and networks are built.
  • Demand for improvements in cycle times will only gain in importance as speed and quality in e-fulfilment operations become a competitive differentiator
  • New technologies, the cloud and start-ups all have the potential to disrupt how real estate developers, LSPs, manufacturers, and retailers manage and operate their warehouses and logistics networks.
  • Security risk and costs are two factors constricting the adoption of smart devices throughout industry.
  • Warehousing and logistics networks are very much in the process of formalising in emerging markets, some from an extremely low base, whereas they are already highly formalised in developed markets.
  • The underlying architecture of world trade has changed dramatically following the rise of ‘global value chains’ as firms and countries now increasingly specialise in ‘stages of production’ rather than specific final goods.
  • As a result of seasonality warehouse networks can be both under-utilised for much of the year and stretched at peak times: to accommodate the peaks and troughs, warehousing practises are becoming more dynamic
  • Warehouse obsolescence should be viewed as a structural driver of demand for new facilities owing to the need to upgrade.
  • To benefit from shared-user facilities, the LSPs operating the facility must be attuned to the requirements of their customers and the markets they operate in.
  • The growth of e-commerce has prompted a fundamental change in the operations that take place within facilities, driving the need for both operational and cost-efficiency across logistics networks.
