Going the Extra Mile for the Last Stretch
The rapid expansion of ecommerce has driven demand for modern warehouse space near populated areas and skilled workers. 5M is aggressively seeking investment and development opportunities to support last-mile delivery, both today and in the future, as supply chains become more efficient and delivery times shorten. Our cutting-edge warehouse and distribution centers are built to meet the physical needs of today's users while adhering to the standards that govern all 5M projects.
Hyper-Focused Strategy on a Regional Level
In supply-constrained markets, 5M's industrial business focuses on the construction of multi-tenant light industrial and supply chain logistics facilities. We specialize in producing modern, unique mid-sized items that are fueled by e-commerce's continuous development. Our highly integrated methodology and experienced staff enable us to move quickly from site selection to lease-up, allowing us to take advantage of the sector's volatility. 5M has developed its industrial asset portfolio in strategic, primary growth regions with speed and precision, using the firm's regional presence and vast network of contacts.
The Impact of E-Commerce
Our global economy is undergoing a structural, not cyclical, transformation as a result of the e-commerce revolution. In comparison to inventory, labor, and transportation, real estate/rent makes up a very small portion of the entire supply chain cost. Growing customer expectations for speed of delivery, as well as company demands for diverse access to readily available blue-collar labor, are driving up investment opportunities in the industrial and transportation sectors. E-commerce companies are eager for real estate that attracts and retains workers, reduces transportation costs, and, in the end, puts items close to customers.
