As companies seek to streamline the last mile of a finished good to its final destination, traditional retail and industrial facility footprint models are giving way to new approaches to fulfillment.

Humans vs. Robots: The Automated Age of Industrial

Time: 11:30 a.m. - noon

Add To Calendar  

Robots work most efficiently when left to their own devices – without human interference in their automated realm. While robots are unlikely to ever fully replace humans in industrial facilities, the increasing importance of harnessing automated technology to serve the needs of e-commerce businesses can’t be denied. Commercial real estate owners and developers must anticipate current and future technology in creating or repurposing e-commerce centers, making these facilities ready for humans and robots to work collaboratively. Examine the trends and technology being applied in order to streamline the last mile and how you can position yourself at the forefront.

Design solutions to the last mile challenge extend beyond fulfillment and distribution of goods, with application to broader economic development and urban revitalization. Explore design solutions to last mile issues across multiple disciplines, including: how the last mile challenge has defined several decades of industrial development, how design of the built environment is manifesting new opportunities for innovators, and how urban networks are evolving in response to technology and social movements.

Fresh Approaches to E-grocery Logistics

Time: 2:15 p.m. - 3 p.m.

Add To Calendar  

As America becomes increasingly consumer-centric – and consumers demand near instant delivery of goods to their doors – online grocery sales have continued to rise in popularity. According to research from Nielsen, online grocery sales reached $20.5 billion in 2016 and are expected to increase to $103.3 billion in 2025, making up 20 percent of total grocery retail sales. Examine how industrial real estate is tackling the logistical obstacles of delivering fresh and consumable products to consumers efficiently and reliably.

Time: 3 p.m. - 4 p.m.

Add To Calendar  

Industrial landlords are striving to reduce last mile distribution costs by acquiring and redeveloping buildings closer to the customer, especially in large urban population centers like Seattle. This session will feature the trailblazers of three-story fulfillment center Georgetown Crossroads – the first of its kind in the U.S. – and the leading industrial broker navigating the change of tide in tenant requirements. Learn about the costs, trends and the customer service issues of last mile logistics.

- John Grossman, Senior Vice President, Millie & Severson, Inc.

Pat Feeney

“I feel that the 48 hours invested in I.CON events is a very worthwhile investment for an industrial broker. The information offered is always high level and current as far as our industry is concerned and the networking is very valuable as well. The bottom line is you are away from your market for only 48 hours and the effort, money invested and time spent is well worth the investment.”

- Pat Feeney, SIOR, Senior Vice President, CBRE
