Industrial Consulting

Selecting the right location for your facility is no small task. Cushman & Wakefield’s Industrial Consulting team can provide the data to help you make the right decision.

A Multi-faceted Approach to Support Your Supply Chain

Cushman & Wakefield’s Industrial Consulting team is comprised of analysts, engineers, architects and researchers who will help you determine what’s next for your industrial assets. We provide an unparalleled level of detail by studying data surrounding labor availability, freight costs, and cost of operation.

Look to us to provide:

Comprehensive and Insightful Site Selection
Selecting the right location for your distribution center or manufacturing plant can be one of the biggest decisions you make. Our site selection specialists look at your entire portfolio to assess where a new facility fits in and what size it needs to be. We exhaustively screen and qualify potential properties, categorize them according to fit and overlay the detailed costs, labor conditions, freight considerations and incentives for each location.

Labor Analysis Solution for Tenants
Our labor analysis gives clients confidence in workforce availability. We examine demographic and economic data, as well conduct local market interviews with key employers to recommend locations where your required workforce is available at the cost that meets your requirements for a long-term fit.

Labor Analysis Solutions for Owners/Developers
Our Competitive Location Assessment (CLA) provide an advantage to property owners by illustrating property demand, transportation, labor, and strengths/weaknesses relative to competing properties and markets. It focuses marketing efforts through identifying target facility types and growing industries and companies.

Freight Cost and Service Modeling
We use market-rate database tools, geospatial modeling and / or RFQ processes to determine cost and service-level differences among locations for inbound and / or outbound components of a single-facility network.

Comparative Market Screening
Our multi-faceted process uncovers the information you need to make decisions about expanding, relocating or establishing new operations in new markets.
