About the series:

The UK’s industrial sheds, warehousing and logistics sectors and the industries supporting them seem to be performing well during the COVID-19 pandemic.  It’s important to recognise that industrial space, warehousing, sheds and distribution hubs play an important, if largely unnoticed, role in all our lives – now more so than ever before.  These real estate asset classes have seen a resurgence of interest and may well continue to do so well into the future – but is this the whole story the data are telling us?  Is what we are seeing a true reflection of the real estate market?  Remember, many other asset classes, once seen as both solid and stable, are performing well below earlier expectations.

COVID-19 has thrown a curve ball never before seen in our lifetime.  As we continue to adapt to a new normal, from where will investment in industrial logistics come and to what will it be committed?

This online series is designed for investors, financiers, developers, valuers, planners, consultants to the sector, logistics providers, occupiers and their advisors.
