Although real estate costs are appreciating at never-before-seen rates, transportation accounts for nearly two-thirds of total supply chain costs. Real estate that is well-located and strategically positioned to lower transportation costs could indeed have partly or fully offsetting impacts on the total expenses of a company over time. In two-thirds of markets, occupiers are entering the market for lease renegotiation earlier than they would have historically. By investing in automation and technology, which was once the more expensive option, occupiers will be able to better manage or even cut costs outright.
