The future of supply chains and industrial property requires a greater focus on resilience. Driven by continued labor shortages, a substantial increase in e-fulfillment volumes and the continuous strive for efficiency makes a higher degree of automation and robotisation inevitable. With that comes the need for smarter and connected buildings to support and accelerate operational efficiencies while enabling ever-shortening delivery times.
There are many innovations outside of urban logistics that try to solve these problems. Innovations like alternative fuels, autonomous vehicles, Artificial Intelligence (AI), robotization (drone delivery), automation and the Internet of Things (IoT). These mind-blowing technologies will also leave a mark on our sector. Combined with the speed of change we are undoubtedly facing one or multiple disruptions in the coming years.
