Logistics is a key market for developed economies that adopt a free trade approach and that can exploit the benefits of the international trade. Dynamics of demand and supply for logistic assets is strictly linked with transportation issues and normally its dynamics are changing over time on the basis of the change of the volume of trades on different routes. Moreover, prices and performance of this sector are different with respect to alternative real estate investment opportunities due to the different type of renters or owners that may be interested to this type of the real estate market.
