Focusing on German and European locations
Logistics properties play a crucial role in the efficient movement of goods. Union Investment is able to accurately assess the quality of a logistics centre when considering it for acquisition, and applies clear criteria when making the purchase decision. We keep a close eye on new developments and market trends at top logistics locations across Europe to ensure that our knowledge stays updated.
Forward-looking investment in logistics properties
Union Investment is always on the look-out for modern logistics properties that have been built to high construction standards and are suitable for alternative uses. We have forged a network of leading developers and major logistics property holders to help us in our search.
One of the key factors is a first-class location, preferably with a multimodal link to strong infrastructure such as a motorway, cargo port, airport or rail network. We also attach great importance to long-term leases. Leveraging favourable market phases for strategic disposals allows us to create value for our investors or reduce the age of our portfolio. We have defined the following criteria for acquisitions:
