The transition from warehouse to European Logistics Centre
Over the last fifteen years the European warehousing and distribution market has been profoundly affected by macro-economic and political considerations. The fundamental changes which began with the creation of the Single European Market have now received fresh impetus from the accession of the economies in the Central & European Europe and an increasingly globalised distribution market.
Alongside changes in the geographic distribution of warehousing facilities, the function of distribution centres has also evolved. This has stimulated demand for high quality, purpose built logistics facilities able not only to store goods but also undertake a range of value adding logistics activities, including postponed manufacturing and cross-docking.
