Purchase and sale of logistics properties

CBRE advises investors and owner-occupiers on the purchase and sale of logistics properties with the aim of achieving the best possible returns with a minimum of risk.


Market knowledge and experience as a guarantee of success

Demand for logistics properties is strong, but supply is limited. This makes investments attractive and offers sellers the opportunity to make significant profits. However, in-depth market knowledge and experience are required in the search for attractive properties and suitable buyers.

Trade in raw materials and goods is becoming increasingly important. Online retailing is booming and logistics and so-called light industrial properties are in high demand. However, the stock of warehouse and transhipment properties is limited and can be expanded only gradually due to the shortage of developmentsites. 
Our logistics property experts are intensively involved in global, national, regional and local markets. They are in regular contact with all the relevant developers, portfolio owners and investors. It is this in-depth knowledge of market mechanisms which enables us to advise and support our Swiss and international clients with their logistics property transactions.
