Prologis wants to help customers run their warehouses more efficiently and compete better. Therefore, it is launching Essentials, a new platform that aims to simplify the lives of companies, increase the efficiency of their warehouse operations and ultimately contribute to more functional global supply chains.
Most recently, Prologis has launched its Essentials platform, through which it offers customers solutions in four key areas: warehouse operations, electromobility, energy and workforce. A range of products and services are available, from material handling equipment, racking and security systems through to complex automation solutions, heat pumps and soon photovoltaics. Prologis has a wide network of proven suppliers and can therefore provide its customers with all these solutions at attractive prices and with varied financing options, including rental or operating lease.
"We know that tenants in logistics buildings often look for these solutions on their own and devote a lot of time and money to it. We want to simplify their lives and offer them an alternative through the Essentials platform, as they can now order everything they need directly from us as the property owner. Prologis will be their partner in the whole process and will take care of the tailor-made offer, installation and possible maintenance of the selected solution," says Vojtěch Štěpnička, Solutions Manager at the Essentials platform. In addition to increased convenience, Essentials provides companies with a way to meet their sustainability commitments. Many of the solutions are sustainable by their very nature. With energy-efficient LED lights, heat pumps or electric vehicle chargers, Prologis customers can take a significant step towards decarbonising their own operations while saving considerable money on energy consumption.
Prologis commissioned a study from independent research institution Oxford Economics, which found that goods worth more than 2.8 percent of global gross domestic product pass through the company's warehouses annually. In Slovakia, Prologis' position is even stronger, with up to 10.4 percent of Slovak GDP passing through the company's buildings at Prologis Park Bratislava. This combination of Prologis' global footprint and the growing importance of logistics real estate is motivating the company to seek solutions to make life as simple as possible for companies, increase the efficiency of their warehouse operations and ultimately contribute to more functional global supply chains.
