Ti’s new report Global Warehousing & Logistics Networks 2016 examines the shifting landscape of supply chain real estate and the changing patterns of distribution on a global basis. Throughout the logistics industry, economic pressures, the rise of the global middle class, the increasing importance of emerging markets as both manufacturing locations and end markets, as well as the growth of e-commerce, are fundamentally changing the shape and character of logistics networks. As a result, logistics service providers and the retailers and manufacturers they support must reassess not only how to best design their logistics facilities to meet requirements, but also where to position network locations to meet demand and commercial imperatives.

Global Warehousing & Logistics Networks 2016 explores the key issues within this continuously evolving supply chain debate from global and regional perspectives.

Exclusive Highlights on the role of warehousing in the supply chain

Although the fundamental goals of logistics have not changed, to get the right products into the right place, at the right time and at a competitive cost, logistics is more complex than ever before. The evolution of global networks of interrelated and interdependent systems, processes and actions is behind the shifting landscape on which logistics real estate and networks are built.

LSPs should expect further pressure for productivity, utilisation and other efficiency gains. Improvements in cycle times will only gain in importance as e-fulfilment operations become a competitive differentiator.

Most large companies operate many different IT systems and technologies throughout their supply chain, as a result of legacy purchases in different areas, as well as M&A integration. This patchwork approach is currently the norm, particularly given that companies have only recently begun to adopt cloud based systems, but start-ups have the potential to disrupt this dynamic.

Unsurprisingly, IOT systems are well suited for applications within the supply chain, where accurate and reliable data holds the potential to dramatically cut costs, but the concern which has thus far constricted the adoption of smart devices throughout industry is a security risk.

Exclusive highlights on the economic metrics shaping logistics networks

Warehousing and logistics networks are very much in the process of formalising in emerging markets, some from an extremely low base, whereas they are already highly formalised in developed markets.

The underlying architecture of world trade has changed dramatically following the rise of ‘global value chains’ as firms and countries now increasingly specialise in ‘stages of production’ rather than specific final goods.

As a result of seasonality warehouse networks can be both under-utilised for much of the year and stretched at peak times: to accommodate the peaks and troughs, warehousing practises are becoming more dynamic.

Warehouse obsolescence is an important driver of market change as it implies a reduction in the supply of industrial real estate, which puts upward pressure on rental rates. However, it should really be viewed as a structural driver of demand for new facilities owing to the need to upgrade.
