What does Corona Virus have to do with Canadian #Warehousing Logistics?
The coronavirus has put a blip on the Canadian economy, reducing the chances of an interesting rate hike.
Industrial real estate capitalization rates are driven by the interest rates lenders are willing to lend at.
When interest rates are lower then industrial prices generally go up because investors or users are able to leverage more funds to purchase property and see better leveraged returns, similar to the housing market.
As rates go high the reverse generally happens in that prices decrease.
What does this mean for #3pl #warehousing in Canada?
The industrial lease rates in key markets of a Canada have increased rapidly over the past few years. Leaving less room for further rapid increases in the near future. Rents 3 years ago that were $7 in Vancouver are now $12, over the next 3 years predictions are rents are to continue to increase, but not at such a rapid rate.
As long as rates are at current market value, warehousing storage rates shouldn’t see an out of the ordinary increase in the near future as the bank of Canada is likely not to increase nor decrease interest rates.

The U.S. and Canada, though they have very different systems of government and laws in place, are intricately connected through trade. America is considered Canada’s largest trading partner, as two-thirds of all the goods shipped by container trucking companies in the Great White North occurred with the United States. Because our commercial logistics are so intertwined, carrier and transportation companies should pay attention to any major changes that take place in America. Currently, the biggest problem has to do with the construction of a new ballpark — in the Charles P. Howard Terminal in the Port of Oakland.
The planned construction would be for the Oakland Athletics, an American professional baseball team. In addition to the ballpark itself, the team is also supporting the building of 3,000 residences near the ballpark, and another 3,000 on the Coliseum site.
The Agriculture Transportation Coalition (AgTC), a national organization that represents agriculture and forest product producers, farmers, processors, and exporters, has expressed concerns over the impact this will have on international trade, especially because deepwater ports are in short supply and high demand.
“We ask the governor, city of Oakland officials and port commission to very carefully consider the impact of permanently limiting the ability of the port to expand and negatively impacting existing maritime operations to serve the states’ and the nation’s agriculture production and exports,” stated AgTC Executive Director Peter Friedmann. “Taking Howard terminal offline and creating barriers to Oakland’s other marine terminals is directly contrary to the expanding infrastructure taking place at all U.S. coasts, in Canada, Mexico and Latin America and efforts to improve cargo velocity and flow.”
Due to the fact that this port acts as a critical gateway to America’s largest international markets, including Asia Pacific and South Asia, a restriction here could have far-reaching repercussions on the nations — like Canada — that depend on this activity to receive goods of their own. Container trucking companies in both the U.S. and its neighbors would suffer in the aftershocks.
Though it is unsure if Friedmann’s impassioned letter will see a response or change anyone’s mind, we can only hope the governor, city of Oakland officials, and port commission understand the potential repercussions.
