$63 billion sold $44 billion bought.
Chinese and foreign investors of US commercial and industrial real estate unloaded nearly $20 billion USD more than they bought in 2019 according to Real Capital Analytics, displaying an exodus of capital from the commercial real estate market. The effect of this is commercial real estate prices have begun to level off from their once heated month over month lifts in the recent years.

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.
Canada is currently facing a serious heavy haul driver shortage. Despite the downfalls of such a future, the nation is adamant about encouraging younger people to give the lucrative career a shot; not only is the Trade and Transportation Corridors Initiative planning to invest $2 billion in Canada’s transportation infrastructure over the next decade, but they are also looking to push for more incentives that container trucking companies can offer new drivers. If you think the commercial logistics (or warehousing and distribution) industry could be a good fit for you, here’s what you can expect from your training.
When you make it through these three phases, you’ll be required to pass a road test to prove your competency. After that, you’re officially qualified to offer your warehousing and distribution services to any business that need a driver! With demand so high, you should have absolutely no problem finding a job.
Managing your company’s commercial logistics is an extremely important part of owning a business. If you sell a product, you have to figure out all the details involved in the transportation and storage of that product to ensure it gets to your customers on time and in one piece. This is especially important if you sell perishables as food grade logistics have a much wider margin for error; if your warehousing and distribution services (including your heavy haul carriers) are not properly equipped with climate-controlled appliances, you will lose consumer loyalty and product in one blow. Let’s take a look at how warehouse management systems can smooth out the wrinkles from one of the most important aspects of business ownership.
Complex Supply Chains Your product needs to go through a number of steps before it finally reaches the consumer. From the assembly line to the carrier, modern supply chains have been growing more complex as the things being bought and sold have gotten more complex; the need to trust the nuances of such a situation to a quality management system has risen as a result. Warehouse management systems offer the following benefits.
At the same time, you’ll be able to focus on improving other areas of your business that might not be getting enough attention. Customer service and productivity often increase thanks to the added assistance and streamlined operations that warehouse management systems offer. Since the food and beverage processing industry is worth approximately $105.5 billion, it’s a worthwhile field to get into; as long as you use a quality warehouse management system, your odds of running into problems are significantly reduced.
Finding the right container trucking company can seem like a daunting task. You need to ask the right questions and be sure you can trust your carrier with your warehousing and distribution needs. But what exactly should you look for when navigating through a long list of logistics companies?
Finding someone with valuable experience is the first step to finding a worthwhile business partner. Living in Vancouver BC gives you an advantage since Canadian for-hire trucking firms manage over 80% of cargo transported intra-provincially.
But aside from looking into experience, you need to consider what you’ll gain from working with a reputable logistics firm.
They’ll do the heavy lifting for you, upping your customer satisfaction and creating unmatched value for your big or small business.
So what are some critical factors in making sure it will be a mutual transaction for both parties?
Before you make your selection, consider asking these questions before settling on one of the many transportation companies out there.
Going with a respected logistics business will help you meet demand and customer satisfaction. You’ll never miss an order or shipment again since they will take care of everything from warehousing, transport, and everything in between.
