For companies relying heavily on logistics flows, suitable logistics real estate is a must. Such logistics real estate can take the form of a storage space, a cross-docking warehouse, a distribution warehouse or a combination of both. A warehouse or shed will often be the first choice, but a large plot of land with limited warehouse on it, may also be an option for goods that can be stored outdoors. Whatever logistics real estate you are looking for, your real estate agent Oreon Properties can help you find the most suitable business premises or the most appropriate construction land.

A key factor in your search for adequate logistics real estate is your sector of activity. For an entrepreneur in the food industry, the commercial property will typically be equipped with insulation and cold stores, whereas a company active in the chemical sector will, for example, require silos where products can be replenished and taken away for subsequent shipment. Emerging commercial real estate are the large storage and distribution centres for e-commerce companies, which usually require a very large surface area as well as an extensive infrastructure. Logistics real estate therefore covers a whole array of possibilities.
The most crucial factor for logistics real estate is, of course, the location. Logistics warehouses are ideally located in the vicinity of ports and near motorway entrances and exits. There are also the distribution warehouses on the outskirts of town, the so-called city warehouses: a relatively new concept where goods are clustered to cover the last mile more efficiently.
When choosing a suitable location, you must also bear in mind the transport modes. Will the goods arrive by truck, by rail or by ship? Or will these means of transport be combined? For trucks, it is important that the driver can easily locate, reach and leave your logistics real estate with a minimum of manoeuvring.
Finally, the loading/unloading bays of logistics real estate are often the decisive factor. How many loading/unloading bays must be present to ensure optimal efficiency during peak hours? Is the access area easily accessible? Will there be a waiting area? Is there sufficient distance between the bays? Are the loading/unloading bays high enough to prevent accidents with large trucks? Your real estate agent Oreon Properties knows the factors to be taken into account and informs you about the risks and the advantages. In other words, your logistics real estate is in good hands!
