Industrial Innovation - Keeping up with On-Demand

Date SEPT. 15, 2020
Time 1:30 - 2:30 PM (CDT)
FeeIncluded in Registration

The on-demand lifestyle is here to stay and now includes our food. Farm to fridge, dark kitchens and micro-fulfillment centers have sprung up. Industrial assets and retail space are being designed differently to help meet this need, but the supply is not keeping up with the demand. What do you need to know to help your clients meet the needs that the on-demand lifestyle has created? What are some creative solutions that have been developed to answer the call? In this session, you will learn:

  • How retailers are making significant investments in their physical distribution infrastructure and supply chains to keep up with Cold Chain and Farm to Fork logistics

  • The current state of Food & Cold Storage and the Last Mile Logistics

  • Demand dynamics: low vacancy rates are pushing demand beyond primary cities and into secondary and tertiary markets

  • Strategies and considerations regarding repositioning or adapting anchor/big-box and shopping mall real estate; micro-fulfillment and reconfiguring and re-outfitting warehouse and fulfillment space

  • New project design and construction and operational considerations
