Warehouse space dedicated to e-commerce in Poland has grown 84% since 2019

Damian Kołata • 19/07/2022
Poland has 7.35 million sq m of warehouse space dedicated to online fulfilment, accounting for 30.7% of the country’s total industrial stock. The fastest growth in such space has been reported in such provinces as Lower Silesia, Greater Poland and Silesia, according to our report “E-Commerce is Bursting at its Seams and Warehouses are Following”.

Last year saw record levels of new warehouse supply

Net take-up, or new leases, came to 5.8 million sq m in the last 12 months, up by 68% compared to 2020. Robust occupier demand for warehouse space was driven by the need to diversify logistics chains to meet the requirements of e-commerce and by congested global supply chains pushing many companies to increase inventory levels.

“The last five years alone saw 12.5 million sq m of new warehouse space come on stream, accounting for over 50% of the entire Polish stock. As a result, modern warehouses meeting the highest standards and requirements dominate, which sets Poland apart from Western European markets, where much older and non-class A warehouse space makes up a substantial proportion of stock,”
