CUSHMAN & WAKEFIELD’S
LOGISTICS & INDUSTRIAL SERVICES TEAM
Cushman & Wakefield’s logistics and industrial services team provides industry-leading real estate and supply chain strategies to
industrial clients throughout the Americas. With more than 840 dedicated professionals in the Americas and over 660 in the US,
the team brings local market knowledge and real-life expertise to every project, delivering innovative solutions and support to
many of the top industrial companies.
In 2017 alone, Cushman & Wakefield’s industrial team completed more
than 234.5 million square feet of transactions in the US. The success is a
result of their investment in understanding clients’ short- and long-term
business goals and collaborating with in-house teams to develop and execute on highly-customized industrial real estate solutions. In fact, Cushman
& Wakefield’s eight specialty advisory groups within the Industrial platform
allow the team to assist with any property type or challenge.
In October 2017, Cushman & Wakefield launched a new initiative called
newCommerce that addresses the changing world of retail and logistics. It
connects the firm’s Retail Services platform with their Logistics, Industrial,
and eCommerce expertise to provide full-service solutions to clients. The
need for newCommerce is centered around the increase in online shopping, wherein retailers must address the supply chain and retail stores with
a combined real estate strategy.
Cushman & Wakefield’s other specialty advisory groups provide clients
with customized industrial solutions in Global Supply Chain Solutions
(GSCS), Rail, 3PL, Food & Beverage, Ports & Intermodal, eCommerce &
Electronic Fulfillment, Automotive, and Build-to-Suit.
Team members include John Morris, Bethany Clark, Ben Conwell, Erin
Bruner and Jason Tolliver.

Services for the Americas. His responsibility includes oversight for the company’s more than 840 brokerage professionals in North and South
