Europe’s Most Desirable Logistics Locations - Revealed
eft are once again surveying the industry to compile the definite ranking of top 100 logistics locations in Europe.
Where to place a distribution centre or warehouse is one of the most important strategic components of any supply chain, or for any 3PL – how do you balance proximity to your customers with cost, access, speed, available labour and available space?
‘Europe has a larger population and a higher combined Gross Domestic Product (GDP) than the U.S., yet it has 4.5 times less Class-A logistics space.’ Said Chris Saynor, CEO of eft. ‘With Europe’s advanced eCommerce culture and embedded logistics industry, we wanted to better understand where developers should be strategically looking to set-up new DCs, warehouses etc.’
In an effort to provide the industry with some answers, eft is once again surveying the industry to compile the definitive ranking of the top 100 logistics locations in Europe.
Variables considered include:
- Proximity to customers and suppliers
- Availability, cost and flexibility of labour
