A new warehouse? Forward Funding is not the only option

By October 29, 2014Warehousing

The UK’s growing shortage of good warehouse floor space is causing an increasing headache for the many Logistics Managers who need to find warehousing space, and fast.

The shortfall looks set to be plugged by investors stepping into the industrial property market. Data from CBRE (the world’s largest commercial real estate services and investment firm) suggests that £2.75bn was invested in the first half of 2014 (which is 25% up on the already inflated figure for the same period in 2013). And by the end of 2014, the figure is likely to be over £6bn.

The key to this new level of investment is forward funding – a concept which developers and property investors would have you believe is now the only choice for Logistics Managers in need of a new warehouse.

But none of this takes into account the practicality of the temporary warehouse as a solution for Logistics Managers wanting to have full control of their storage capacity and looking for a storage solution which is responsive to the changing demands of business and market.

A temporary warehouse from Spaciotempo puts the customer in control by enabling you to deal direct and get the building you need, when you need it, and for as long as you want it. Flexible hire terms or purchase, bespoke or instant solution, the choice is up to you.

So if you want a new warehouse for Christmas, rather than looking at speculative development backed by forward funding, why not talk to Spaciotempo about a temporary building – for a flexible and low risk option.
