Logistics market flying high

Belgium is very well appreciated as a centre for logistics activity, and this is borne out by the figures for the market for the first half of the year. As recorded by JLL, with take-up of 412,000 m up to the end of June, 2017 is so far outperforming the five year average to the tune of 35%. This is despite being 25% lower than 2016 which the broker describes as an exceptional year.

The largest transactions this year have been by occupants for own use, such as Katoen Natie which is extending its Loghidden City (Antwerp) site (100,000 m) and Jost logistics which is constructing 44,000 m at Trilogiport (Lige).

As usual, the majority of logistics transactions have taken place on the Antwerp-Brussels and Antwerp-Ghent axes, which have accounted for just over half (55%) of all activity.

Where deliveries during the first half of 2017 are concerned, there has been a total of 126,000 m, of which 44,000 m for Lidl at Marche-en-Famenne and 40,000 m for Decathlon in the MG Park De Hulst at Willebroek. JLL reports that 23 major logistics projects are currently under construction, totalling 674,000 m. Some 500,000 m of this space will be delivered this year, bringing the 2017 total to 630,000 m, double the five year average.
