In the Czech Republic, more than 2 million sqm of new warehouse space for e-shops is slated for construction.

Over 1 million sqm is to be located in the Ústí Region, the Karlovy Vary Region, and the Plzeň Region. This results from an analysis conducted by BNP Paribas Real Estate APM ČR. BNP Paribas Lead Consultant Lenka Šindelářová said that e-commerce and retail account for up to 30% of all demand for warehouse properties. She added that due to declining availability of workforce, both logistics firms and operators are talking about automation.
