Warehouse logistics plays a key role in the development of the e-commerce industry as a basic service element. 90% of the largest industry companies in Poland indicate the development of logistics facilities as one of the most important elements of the development strategy.
Depending on the development strategy chosen by an e-commerce company, an investment in warehouses can be carried out in two ways: by purchasing or renting them.
What are the main advantages and disadvantages of each solution?
How to prepare for the transaction and what to pay attention to?
How to approach the insurance issue?
We answered these and many other questions during the last meeting with the participation of law, tax and insurance experts from Noerr, Mazars and Marsh, who presented the practical aspects of purchasing and renting logistics real estate.
Today, actors in the transport & logistics industry find themselves in an environment undergoing profound changes: skyrocketing prices of raw materials, hardening of regulatory and environmental constraints, globalisation and the intensification of the cross-border flow of goods linked to the widespread opening up of competition, expansion of the e-commerce industry.
The Polish e-commerce sector has been showing a strong upward trend for several years now. The COVID-19 pandemic has only accelerated it and has made the year 2020 very special as new opportunities open up. Decisions on the distribution of products and services through electronic channels have been made faster, and for some companies the launch of online sales has become a condition for survival.
The e-commerce sector in Poland has been growing very dynamically for several years, and the COVID-19 pandemic has caused even faster growth of this market, bringing almost threefold acceleration. It may therefore be concluded that the rapid increase of online sales is the most important business transformation of the past year.
