For a long time, all the team at Prologis had to worry about was the classic real estate value driver of location… location… location. Then they started to notice a shift in their customers’ business model that was having an impact on their investment in real estate. Fortunately, their CEO is forward-thinking, and they were able to adjust and start addressing some of the pain-points faced by their large eCommerce customers, including labor and automation.
In this episode of the Supply Chain Real Estate series, William O'Donnell, Managing Partner with Prologis Ventures, and his colleague Todd Lewis, Vice President, talk about the types of investment they make and how they assess the specific needs of each client.
In this episode of the Supply Chain Real Estate Series, guest host Ward Richmond, Executive Vice President at Colliers International, joins Scott Luton to discuss:
• The four components of the labor challenge they help their clients solve: recruitment, retention, training, and safety.
• The process and resource efficiencies that make a measurable difference inside the warehouse and out at the dock
• How the warehouse of the future will combine automation and human talent to drive “wildly attractive” outcomes
