Going the extra mile for last-mile

The explosive growth of e‑commerce has fueled demand for modern warehouse space with proximity to population centers and skilled labor. As supply chains evolve and delivery times shrink, CA is aggressively targeting investment and development opportunities to facilitate last-mile delivery, both today and in the future. Our state-of-the-art warehouse and distribution facilities are designed around the physical requirements of today’s users while adhering to the ESG standards that guide all CA developments.

Approach

Hyper-focused strategy, on a national scale

CA’s industrial division is dedicated to the development of multi-tenant light industrial and supply chain logistics sites in supply constrained markets. We specialize in delivering modern, differentiated mid-sized products supported by the continued growth of e‑commerce. Our vertically integrated approach and team of industry veterans allow us to move swiftly from site selection to lease up⁠ — capitalizing on the sector’s positive secular tailwinds. Leveraging the firm’s national presence and extensive network of relationships, CA has expanded its portfolio of industrial assets in strategic, primary growth markets with speed and accuracy.

Opportunity

The e‑commerce effect

The e‑commerce revolution is a secular, not cyclical, shift within our global economy. Real estate/​rent is a negligible percentage of the total supply chain cost in comparison to inventory, labor and transportation. Growing customer expectations for speed of delivery, coupled with business demands for diversified access to readily available blue-collar labor, are escalating investment opportunities in the industrial and logistics sector. E‑commerce businesses are hungry for real estate that attracts and retains labor, minimizes transportation costs and, ultimately, positions products close to consumers.
