14 Strategic role of warehousing activities Warehousing plays an essential role in (1) facilitating trade, (2) increasing the competitiveness of a nation or region and (3) they are assets and sources of innovation in supply chains. Belgium and the Netherlands score high on economic performance indicators such as the Global Competitiveness Index and the Logistics Performance Index (LPI) 2012 LPI 2007 LPI LPI LPI % LPI LPI rank score of highest performer rank score Singapore Hong Kong Finland Germany Netherlands Denmark Belgium Japan United States United Kingdom Source: The World Bank

23 The European warehousing landscape Prime logistics yields are not expected to shift dramatically over the coming years

24 Logistics zones surrounding Belgium and the Netherlands France Germany

25 Port hinterland dynamics in warehousing Role of corridors and inland ports Emergence of logistics poles consisting of a set of gateway ports and logistics zones in the (immediate) hinterland (cf. Rhine Scheldt Delta) Importance of routing flexibility FROM TO Multimodal transshipment center Transport corridors Logistics site Secondary logistics zone Company-specific logistics network Primary logistics zone LAND SEA LAND SEA Source: Notteboom & Rodrigue (2004)

26 Port hinterland dynamics in warehousing The following logistics and warehousing activities typically find a good habitat in ports : Logistics activities resulting in a considerable reduction in the transported volume; Logistics activities involving big volumes of bulk cargoes, suitable for inland navigation and rail; Logistics activities directly related to companies which have a site in the port area; Logistics activities related to cargo that needs flexible storage to create a buffer (products subject to season dependent fluctuations or irregular supply); Logistics activities with a high dependency on short sea shipping.

27 Port hinterland dynamics in warehousing Advantages of locating EDC inside the port: Good integration and cooperation between terminal operations and distribution center activities; Possibility to re export from the port to other markets; Reduce traffic congestion and pollution for local inhabitants when operating EDC activities inside the port area. Disadvantages of a location in a seaport: Port land tends to be more expensive than land in immediately surrounding areas Port land tends to be priced in a different way + entry modalities (concessions) Manufacturers have less flexibility because of the constraint to call the port where the EDC is located and the often limited number of suppliers of warehousing services in ports The work regime in distribution centers in ports: dock workers (cf. Logistics Contingent in Belgium) In some cases, the port is located far away from the final destination of goods. The cost of land for logistics activities in euro per square meter for major European logistics areas (figures for 2008).

31 Economic location factors Proximity and access to target markets Source: Cushman & Wakefield

32 Economic location factors Proximity and access to target markets Estimated shares of the Delta port region in containerized inland cargo (by road, rail and barge) compared to Hamburg, Bremerhaven and Le Havre (2007) Strong in Benelux, West Germany and northern and northeastern France.... but weak in East, Central and South Europe. Growing importance of 24h rule puts pressure on centralised distributuon systems

34 Content 1 General perspectives on the warehousing market 2 Warehousing locations and determining factors 3 Warehousing developments 4 Strategic reflections and recommendations in light of market developments

35 Emerging trends General trends impact on warehousing sector Globalization of production and trade Mass customization and time to market Liner shipping network developments Increased logistics outsourcing and the rise of 3PL and 4PL Safety and ecology The rise of intermodality (?)

36 Emerging trends Specific trends in the warehousing sector Lean warehousing aimed at reducing waste or activities which do not generate added value for the customer. Green and sustainable warehouses (energy use, rolling stock, construction materials, exterior design, recycling, etc..) business case approach remains key! Collaborative warehousing IT and technology: Improved product flow visibility, event management, performance management WMS (Warehousing Management System) and TMS (Transport Management System) integration labour management software voice enabled technology

Networked EDC Less VALS in EDC DC bypass Twin/triple EDC system

38 Content 1 General perspectives on the warehousing market 2 Warehousing locations and determining factors 3 Warehousing developments 4 Strategic reflections and recommendations in light of market developments

39 Strategic reflections and recommendations Warehousing is a key economic activity, an important component of distribution systems and supply chain solutions and an enabler of gateway and industrial activities Belgium and the Netherlands remain top locations but reconfigurations and adaptations to logistics networks are eminent (e.g. twin EDC concept, rise of eastern Europe, etc..) Key actions include: Sustained focus on cost base (land, labour, energy, taxes, etc..); Availability of land for further warehousing and distribution activities; Market access and operational modalities in seaports; Warehousing diversity (size, no. of players) in ports and inland locations; Intermodal connectivity of logistics sites and supply/use of intermodal services; Innovation in hardware/software and sustainability Principles of lean warehousing and flexibility Enhance culture of coordination and collective actions among market players and nodes
