POLAND The Łódź region has been ranked the fourth best warehouse market in Europe by the Prologis Europe development and the Eyefortransport think tank.

The ranking was based on a survey conducted among European logistics operators across Europe. The respondents were asked to assess infrastructure, proximity to customers/suppliers and to economic centres, labour availability and operating costs.

Two Dutch markets topped the ranking: Venlo and Rotterdam while the Antwerp-Brussels Corridor (Belgium) came third. Dusseldorf - Rhein Ruhr came fifth and Kraków was ranked tenth and was the only CEE city beside Łódź in the European top ten.

As Dirk Sosef the vice-president of the research and strategy department at Prologis Europe points out CEE markets, not surprisingly, dominate the European ranking when it comes to low costs, such as the cost of labour and real estate prices. On the other hand however, they continue to underperform compared to the rest of Europe in regard to infrastructure and the proximity to consumers and suppliers. “I think once all the infrastructural improvements are in place and economic centres becomes better connected, more locations in the CEE region can be expected to move up in the overall rankings,” sums up Dir Sosef.
