Global instability, problems with global supply chains and logistics and the growing e-commerce sector are the key drivers of demand for new warehousing space. All our projects in Poland, Germany, Austria and Romania are progressing on schedule, and we have secured funding for them. Geographical diversification and a diverse base of clients across industries further strengthen our operational stability. Our major strength is our land portfolio, which positions us for fast growth in Europe and new market entries in the coming years, in line with our stated strategic goals", said Radosław T. Krochta, President of the Management Board of MLP Group S.A.
