Latest developments and challenges in the logistics real estate sector
On the afternoon of Wednesday 29 November, the splendid Landgoed Luchtenburg estate formed the backdrop for Groenewout’s knowledge & networking event, which was attended by more than 60 logistics professionals.
There is no doubt that the market needs more warehousing space. Over the past 20 years, the Dutch logistics real estate market has grown strongly, from 20 million square meters to approximately 40 million square meters.
