Andrew is the Logistics and Supply Chain Director for an online fashion retailer. It delivers clothes and shoes to a global network of retail stores, as well as directly to customers. Andrew needs the best property partner for his business. For him, it's about the right site in the right location. His business offers same and next-day delivery to customers in the region, so it's essential he finds a location close to major urban centres.
He wants to deal with specialists who have the right locations, or land available on which to develop new facilities.
To compete, Andrew needs his supply chain at maximum efficiency, which means the latest technology and automation. Things move fast, so staying adaptive and flexible is crucial. He wants his property partner to help him grow, which may mean helping him to re-design his facility to update its automated sorting equipment.
Andrew wants a property partner who understands future challenges better than he does. He wants to deal with specialists who have the right locations, or land available on which to develop new facilities. He wants to feel confident his partner can manage his real estate needs so he can concentrate on his core work: distributing products to customers.
Numerous providers can offer Andrew a suitable facility but more than that, he values:
Great customer service – responsive, experienced and with a long-term view of working together over a number of years
Quality – Andrew's distributors will visit his facility, so it must have a professional presentation, be well built and be scrupulously maintained. He needs it to reflect positively on his business and motivate his workforce.
Andrew cares about the future and knows his customers do too. He wants success that's not at the expense of the planet and he knows a lot about how fashion manufacturing impacts the environment. He constantly looks for ways to embrace an ethical mindset and embed sustainable practices into projects.
His company is proud of its commitment to sustainability and social responsibility. It uses ethically sourced materials and expects its facility to manufacture sustainably. To this end, it's important the facility is energy efficient with consideration given to solar panels, LED lights and water recycling.
Andrew is cost conscious, but he doesn't want to cut corners or compromise quality. His company takes care of its people and views them as an asset. To attract top talent, he knows he needs to provide convenient transport connections and the best amenities, such as well-designed breakout zones, cafes, gyms and outdoor areas.
