In response, JLL has launched its first survey on Global Logistics Real Estate to test sentiment in the market and gather fresh insights across a range of issues that could affect future occupier and investment decisions in this highly dynamic sector.

The survey was completed by 720 of JLL’s logistics experts in 43 countries and territories across our global network. This survey spans the full breadth of the market, including sector demand, constraints and opportunities, sustainability solutions, technology and building design, supply chain realignment, the rise of cold storage and the future of urban logistics.
