Brazil should end 2021 with a 12% growth in the area occupied by logistics projects



Brazil should end 2021 with a 12% growth in the area occupied by logistics projects. There will be more than two million square metres of new warehouses. Another indication that the sector is booming is that the unemployment rate has never been lower: 8%. Three out of four new warehouses are rented even before ready. The spaces bring tax benefits to cities, with increased tax collection and hope to workers, as stated by the Giancarlo Nicastro, CEO of SiiLA Brazil.


"Sees regions like the south of the country with a zero vacancy rate; job creation is the first impact that the population feels. So we have such areas as extreme, for example, in Minas Gerais if we have 2000 vacancies open for more than a year that we cannot fill."


The growth is the result of the consolidation of new online shopping habits. Whoever can deliver in less time wins the competition. Therefore, proximity to the consumer market is essential, as explained by the Brazilian Association of Electronic Commerce vice president Rodrigo Bandeira "delivering correctly in the shortest time possible is Brazil's biggest challenge. Brazil is a large country with long distances to travel through carriers. Also, have better local stock management."
