Who is Prologis, Inc.?

Have you ever placed an order online through Amazon? There’s a good chance that your delivery came from a Prologis warehouse. Prologis owns logistics real estate facilities across the globe that they rent to companies that need to transport goods. Prologis’s customers include brands you may be familiar with: Amazon, FedEx, UPS, Walmart, and Best Buy. Prologis customizes the warehouse space to its tenant’s requirements. For Amazon, that means installing robotic storage solutions for quick order fulfillment. For Procter & Gamble, Prologis worked with the local authorities to build access roads to the facility. The company adds value in the logistics supply chain by enabling their customers to receive, store and deliver goods more efficiently. Supporting long-term trends in urbanization, consumption and e-commerce, Prologis locates buildings near metropolitan areas to minimize the distances people and goods must travel.

Sustainability Initiatives

Prologis strives to build warehouses to achieve local green building certifications to deliver best-in-class projects. Prologis is a leader in roof-top solar installations. At the end 2016, Prologis was ranked third in total solar energy generation capacity in the US, behind only Target and Walmart.3Prologis roof-top solar currently generates 165 Megawatts which is enough to power 24,484 homes for a year.4

Property Spotlight

Georgetown Crossroads is a LEED Gold Certified building in downtown Seattle and one of the first multistory warehouses in the US. Prologis’s development of multistory warehouses in downtown areas demonstrates a commitment to urbanism, a key measurement of sustainability. Building warehouse storage and office facilities near densely populated areas reduces sprawl, keeps jobs local, and enables the use of public transport. It also allows companies like Amazon to innovate transportation choices for ‘the last mile’. The last mile of the delivery is often the most difficult because of traffic congestion, parking issues, and greater sensitivity to noise and pollution. With the trend of customers demanding more frequent deliveries in shorter timeframes, companies prefer closer warehouses, so they can make shorter trips, using smaller, even electric, vehicles. This reduces fuel consumption and improves air quality. It also allows for on-demand-delivery jobbing, creating even more local employment.
