The rise in distribution activity has led to a reexamination of existing retail and industrial properties, especially in the Last Mile, the final stage of delivery between transit and consumer which accounts for up to 75.0% of the total supply chain cost. Retailers are looking to reduce parcel delivery times to urban markets by strategically implementing smaller and more localized distribution centers in or near the fringe of the urban market. This solution has recently beennoted in Toronto and Vancouver where distribution spaces near the urban core have been used as localized distribution centers to provide same day delivery services in urbanmarkets.
