Upcoming Research Brief: Trade and Industrial Demand Near North American Ports

North America Ports

Recent shortages and price inflation due to disruptions in global supply chains have underscored the importance of maritime ports and industrial real estate to the economy. The NAIOP Research Foundation has commissioned Avison Young to author a research brief on how trends in international trade are affecting regional demand for industrial real estate near North American ports.

The brief, scheduled for publication November 2021, will examine recent changes in the volume of goods moving through major ports and associated changes in net absorption of industrial real estate in adjacent markets. It will also examine how developments that affect trade capacity, such as disruptions due to COVID-19 and recent port expansions, affect trade flows and industrial demand.
