The availability of labour is a critical component of logistics supply chains..

The welfare of those employed and working within our developments is a major influence on the way in which we design, develop and deliver our buildings. For any employee to flourish they need to be in comfortable and vibrant surroundings – our buildings are where we look to provide facilities to help individuals enjoy and work to their maximum potential.

Key insights.

Why is labour so important?

Despite technological advances and more widespread automation, the logistics sector remains a relatively labour-intensive industry.

Is there a labour shortage In Europe?

At an aggregate level, the unemployment rate across Europe is now below its pre-crisis low.

Real Estate as part of the solution

There is a perception that the overwhelming reason for labour shortages is a supply issue, over which the industry has little control.

"Technological advances and more widespread automation will facilitate increased production and demand, but it won’t eliminate the labour component."
