Polish warehouses which have more than 20 years were used for industry. These buildings are located in premises of industrial or post-industrial areas. This places are compared to B- and C-class warehouses but sometimes also have requisite standards.
The warehouses which exist on market since 2020 have new standards. The parameters of these buildings like: the height of a warehouse, floor and rooftop carrying capacity or fireproofing are prepared with higher-level standards than in other buildings. Nowadays, warehouses have better automation and robotisation solutions for logistics. Polish and European warehouses are build with green policy and have ecological certifications.
Today, developers and tenants are really interested in sustainable projects. Green solutions are perfect for them in a long therm, because they can save energy and charges for exploitation.
JLL research gives forecasts for the nearest 5 years. Thanks of them, we can guess that warehouses which are called ”big boxes” will use artificial intelligence (62%) and automation and robotisation (54%). Our forecasts give us also information about advanced systems at BTS buildings which are chosen by tenants who plan long-term development.
In JLL’s report called Logistics Buildings of Tomorrow we mention new solutions, e.g.: artificial intelligence, Internet of Things or even special print which was used for aviation, motorisation and space science. Nowadays, these techniques are becoming the basic solutions for intelligent warehouses and for logistics.
