UKWA teams up with CBRE to understand Logistics Occupier trends

August 13, 2019

UKWA has teamed up with CBRE again this year to pinpoint the latest trends, priorities and attitudes of warehousing users with a comprehensive nationwide survey.

Key topics include challenges faced by logistics and warehousing businesses, including the impact of Brexit and stockpiling in recent months, as well as labour and recruitment issues. Respondents will be asked about future plans on geographical expansion, location preferences and building features. In addition, the survey will look at potential technology disruptors for logistics operators.

According to UKWA CEO Peter Ward, the survey will provide an important indicator for members as to what warehouse and logistics users will be looking for going forward as well as an opportunity to contribute to the overall picture of the industry from an operator point of view.

“I urge members to take the opportunity to be part of the 2019 survey and help align service offerings with the needs of users,” he said. “In return for your participation, CBRE will provide an exclusive preview of results in Q4 of 2019, as well as hosting a WebEx/Zoom presentation, which will give you direct insight into the opportunities that are driving the industry and important market intelligence for your business going forward.”

The survey takes just 10 minutes to complete and all responses will be confidential.
