In its inaugural annual Distribution Markets study, JLL’s research team, special practice groups, and industrial professionals worked closely to locate the top 18 distribution markets in America.
When most hear industrial, the immediate thoughts bounce to the Inland Empire in Southern CA, as well as New Jersey, and other coastal and geographically centralized regions. But, as transportation costs rise and demand for immediate service increases, there are other areas that will also rise in prominence in the sector.
The report dives deeply into what determines a market’s ranking, with considerations that include: population access, labor metrics, costs of business, taxes and incentives, and CRE fundamentals affecting investment and site-selection.
The rankings are:
- New Jersey/New York Metro Area
- Southern California
- Central and Eastern Pennsylvania
- Chicago Metro
- Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex
- The Mideast
- The Mid-Atlantic
- Southeast Texas
- Louisville, Memphis, Nashville
- The Carolinas
- Kansas City, St. Louis
- Northern California and Reno
- Las Vegas, Phoenix
- Denver, Salt Lake City
- The Pacific Northwest
To see why each market ranked as it did, be sure to read the in-depth report at the jump.
