Australia Major Report - Industrial and Logistics Occupier Survey September 2017
CBRE have recently undertaken an Australian Industrial and Logistics Occupier Survey. The survey spoke to occupiers of industrial assets to get a better understanding of decision making, future plans and how changes in technology are impacting the real estate requirements. Similar surveys have rarely been undertaken in the Australian industrial market and there is limited benchmarking of what drives industrial occupiers’ decision making.
The results have been wide-ranging and reflect an engaged and optimistic industrial and logistics market. The survey had a wide scope and looked at how technology and automation are impacting business requirements, what impact e-commerce has had / will have, and what drives an occupier’s satisfaction with their industrial premises.
The outcomes of this research provides clarity around opportunities that exist to attract and retain tenants into the future and tools to futureproof industrial and logistics acquisitions.
