Courier company Sameday, controlled by Romania’s biggest online retailer eMag, rented another 1,200 square meters of warehouse space in Tunari, near Bucharest, to continue its expansion.
The location is a former car showroom of Badsi Impex.
The transaction was brokered by the industrial department of real estate consulting firm Cushman & Wakefield Echinox.
The industrial and logistics market was the most resilient in the first half of the year, when companies rented almost 300,000 sqm, in the context of a growing demand from online and traditional retailers to establish distribution centers in locations that allow faster deliveries to clients and stores.
In Bucharest, the volume of transactions reached approximately 127,000 sqm, up by 32% compared to the same period of 2019.
About 90% of this demand came from the retail (traditional and online), distribution, logistics, and FMCG sectors, which had to optimize their distribution and supply chains to adapt to a high volatility demand.
