Portugal in the 5th position of the European countries that most attract investment
The European Real Estate Logistics Census study, published by real estate consulting Savills, shows that Portugal is at the top of the radar of companies looking to expand their storage space. Portugal is in the fifth position, at European level, among the countries capable of attracting more investment to the logistics sector, ahead of France, Germany, Spain, and Italy.
This is the consequence of the reconfiguration of storage needs originated by the lockdowns and the consequent growth of online commerce, which has forced a redefinition of storage needs and capacities. Therefore, companies intend to expand their storage space, associated with a logistics sector that has registered good results. Portugal is at the top of the list of preferences for 24% of logistics operators that intend to increase their storage capacity in Europe, due to its strategic location.
Similarly, the Port of Sines consolidated its position as the national leader in terms of containerized cargo handled, ranking in the top 15 largest European ports. All the growth recorded reinforced the role of the port and its community throughout the transport logistics chain and demonstrated how the Port of Sines is a strong driver of national exports.
