Our gateway city strategy

At Goodman, our determination to be the best at what we do has always been defined by the quality and location of our properties.

We invest in and develop high quality industrial properties in strategic locations, in and around major gateway cities globally, where demand is strong and transformational change is driving significant opportunity.

Demand for modern, well-located logistics space is driven by a number of key themes.

They underpin significant change across the industrial property sector globally, and the role that logistics and warehousing space has traditionally played.

Urbanisation

The continued urbanisation of gateway cities is driving business opportunity and decisions. By 2030, large cities will account for 81% of global consumption*. Locating properties close to consumers is good for our customers and their customers in turn.

Consumerism

Growing consumerism is driving demand across a broad range of sectors from retail and pharmaceutical to automotive. In 2030, global consumption will have increased by USD23 trillion*. Our gateway city strategy positions our customers for success.

Technology

Innovations, particularly in e-commerce and mobile, are changing consumer behaviour and driving greater investment in locations close to major urban centres and end-consumers. With the rise and rise of digital technology, our gateway city locations help customers satisfy increasing consumer demand for speed and convenience.

Value

Customers are focusing on getting more value from their property solutions and achieving cost efficiencies, which include consolidating operations, upgrading facilities, rationalising supply chains, greater automation and the use of robotics.

The quality and location of our properties have always been key factors in Goodman’s investment decisions and they define the composition of our overall global property portfolio. In the context of the themes transforming our sector, we continue to see ongoing growth in the quality and strength of our properties in and around major gateway cities and this forms the basis of our overall business strategy.
