Dr. Steinmüller, are pop-up or pay-per-use models a viable answer to the digital structural transition in the production and logistics industry?
Pop-up and pay-per-use concepts are two impressive examples of increasing space efficiency that we are seeing in many types of utilization concepts in real estate. And they show the importance of “own” space for tenants today: Nowadays, tenants only want to pay for what they use: in logistics for example, storage space that they actually utilized for a specific period.
This means that they need extremely flexible rental structures, which in turn pose huge challenges to landlords of logistics and manufacturing facilities. The concepts of sharing economy are finding their way into all areas of life.
