Dugan & Co Property Australia is an independent Brisbane owned and operated commercial/industrial agency, supporting and working with transport and logistics businesses that are the backbone of our economy.
E-commerce has revolutionised buying and selling goods. The e-commerce business model is clear: consumers have greater access to a wider range of goods and services, allowing retailers to spread their consumer base and digital reach.
Due to online shopping (e-commerce), many bricks-and-mortar stores have realised the power of digital reach by shifting from their traditional retail presence to online platforms and in-turn saving the operating costs associated with the traditional retail footprint.
The growth across the digital retail economy has created a massive demand in the warehousing, logistics and transport space.
Dugan & Co Property is actively working with clients across South East Queensland to provide locations and facilities for their growth.
“Global supply chain challenges have further compounded the need for space. Business now is seeking to store more goods to avoid the risk of being unable to trade due to lack of stock,” said Paul Dugan, principal of Dugan & Co Property.
Industrial warehousing is in strong demand as there is a need for warehouses to accommodate large volumes of stock for businesses, with consumers able to purchase goods and have their purchases shipped directly from the 3PL warehouse to the buyer. This process requires large format warehousing to be near shipping ports, major highways and airports in order to increase efficiency and reduce transportation costs.
Another warehousing sector to experience huge growth is ‘last mile warehousing’. This sector in supply chain management and transportation planning is the last leg of an e-commerce packages journey.
“Turnkey purchasing or design and construct for leasing of new developments helps business requiring property plan and get ahead of the curve,” said Dugan.
Currently at Dugan & Co we have multiple design and construct opportunities for sale and lease across South East Queensland. We are working with our extensive developer network to deliver our clients turnkey facilities for future growth.
Rental rates are seeing a sharp increase to compensate for increasing build and land rates. The shift in the rental market is seeing many owner operators move from traditionally leasing to now acquiring facilities to fix their future leasing costs and increase their asset base.
