COVID-19 Will Drive Changes in Industrial Real Estate
Companies may shift from a lean-inventory strategy and position more safety stock around the country, a move that calls for additional storage space and not necessarily just in the short term.
In response to the coronavirus crisis, supply chains will change—and the industrial market will change along with them.
Supply chain disruptions caused by the pandemic are expected to increase demand for warehouse space and, at the same time, drive lasting changes in storage and logistics. Additionally, increased attention to supply chains will likely spur companies to address circumstances that interfere with their reliability and functionality.
