Often, these are expressed as dichotomies; that people and companies must choose between two extremes. However, many of these “shifts” are built on complex, longer-term trends that offer nuanced solutions for occupiers and their employees. The Sunbelt region has emerged as a key beneficiary.

Boom do e-commerce

Sem dúvida um dos setores que ganharam maior expansão com a pandemia dado o aumento vertiginoso das vendas por e-commerce foi o de centros de distribuição e logística. Nos últimos meses, as medidas de restrição de circulação e o fechamento do comércio físico para conter o avanço da Covid-19 levaram o público consumidor em geral a optar massivamente por compras on-line e serviços de entrega. Conforme dados divulgados pela Associação Brasileira de Comércio Eletrônico, em 2020 o faturamento do setor ficou 37% acima do previsto antes do início da pandemia, com uma alta acima de 60% comparado ao ano anterior.
