The Dutch industrial & logistics real estate market has experienced steady growth over the past five years. The Netherlands is a major logistics hub in Europe, which combined with the rise of e-commerce has contributed to the increasing demand for high-quality, sustainable industrial & logistics real estate. Vacancy is very low and deliveries of new stock is rather limited, which will result in a continuous upward pressure on rents, especially if the buildings will enjoy further sustainability upgrades.

Unifore I&L’s will focus on value add opportunities as well as roll-out a mid-term portfolio strategy.
