Industrial

Game-changing forces such as e-commerce and omni channel are changing the industrial landscape. Now more than ever, identifying emerging markets, strategically locating your distribution centers and tapping the best labor pools need to be part of your industrial real estate strategy.

Our consultants take a holistic view of your entire supply chain.

We know how the right real estate can add vital flexibility to your logistical needs, so we look beyond just rent to the equally important costs associated with transportation, fuel, and labor.  

Cresa’s industrial team takes a data driven approach to develop alternative business scenarios and then overlays the relevant ground truth as we move into a down selected list of geographies and properties resulting in holistic solutions that ensure our clients’ long-term success. Our comprehensive approach integrates supply chain and distribution network modeling, inventory rationalization, lean and six sigma operational improvements with labor analytics, utilities, taxes and incentives to deliver scenarios that meet operational demands, delivery times and quality assurance while minimizing cost.

Maybe you need to modernize, tap a more capable workforce, find economic incentives, integrate recent acquisitions, or even back shore your operations. We have experience in your world and know how to apply our operations experience, real estate expertise and a deep understanding of supply chain, distribution, and inventory rationalization to source the best solutions for your unique needs. We partner exclusively with occupiers in a way that is unbiased and yields recommendations that are in your best interest.

We provide the full range of integrated services — from data analytics, strategic planning, financial structuring and transaction management to project management — each service accessible from a single point of contact:

  • Supply Chain Consulting
