“E-commerce and the Internet in general will continue to influence the way that retailers connect and interact with the customer; therefore, online retailing and multi-channel retailing will be a substantial driver of activity and growth for real estate. Like other real estate asset classes, the logistics market is divided into many sub-segments. There is no ‘one-concept-fits-all’ solution and it is becoming increasingly important to distinguish between different requirements.”

Furthermore, Mr. Paetzmann shares his views on the latest trends in retail logistics and talks about the influence of e-commerce on the European logistics real estate market.
