E-Commerce: The Present and Future of ‘Last Mile’ Industrial
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2017
Location: WilmerHale, 60 State St., Boston
Registration: 7:45 a.m. | Program: 8:00 – 9:15 a.m.
E-commerce and changes in consumer behavior are creating a supply/demand imbalance for industrial real estate in urban locations. As consumers demand ever-faster delivery of their purchases, online retailers like Amazon are increasingly seeking out “last mile” warehouses and facilities near dense population centers. These same-day fulfillment centers are disrupting the traditional supply chain and are becoming the functional equivalent of brick-and-mortar retail stores. Join REFA and our panel of investors, developers and brokers as we discuss the economic impacts and potential opportunities in the industrial and warehouse space.
