Supply chain and logistics enterprise resource and demand planning has forever been complex. However, post-COVID pandemic issues brought visibility to these struggles to the front doors of customers around the world. Yet this risk and uncertainty underpin both opportunity and innovation. Innumerable technologies are continuing to rapidly accelerate—not only from e-commerce consumer spending habits, but also within supply chain management, the employment of analytics and machine learning, freight operations, autonomous trucking, and onto the floor of distribution centers. The logistics sector has always been data-rich, but only now are individual industry verticals becoming more aligned around the flow of information, how it is processed, consumed, and shared. From trade data, geopolitical events, and transparency to the flow of goods and materials throughout supply chains and into warehouses around the world, there is an impact on the built environment. Demand for rapid delivery from urban consumers is propelling micro-fulfillment, while scarcity issues and competition spanning the last two years have spurred new levels of leasing and development in and around cities.
