November 2015


Over the past 35 years, global trade has increased by nearly 600%, propelling the growth of logistics hubs in virtually every country around the world.

These hubs are connected via hub-and-spoke systems centered around 30 global logistics hubs—including the likes of Los Angeles, Chicago, Hong Kong, Tokyo, London and Paris—that form the backbone of today’s global supply chain.

However, as emerging markets grow and new centers of production materialize, 20 emerging markets are on the verge of becoming global logistics hubs over the next decade, including South Florida, Bajio, Busan, Suzhou, Berlin and Amsterdam.

These locations warrant close attention from the marketplace, as logistics hubs are typically home to large clusters of distribution facilities that are highly sought after by major real estate investors and logistics operators.
