China gradually becomes the manufacturing and trading centers in the world. Huge export markets, sharply increasing domestic retail industry and the emerging e-business all provide rising motivation for the warehousing industry. 

In 2011, the total revenue of China’s warehousing industry exceeded CNY 600 billion, with an increase of over 10% YOY.

In China’s warehousing industry, the overseas logistics property developers, such as Global Logistic Properties (GLP), Goodman Group, Gazeley, and so on take up important shares, and the rest shares are mainly controlled by parts of sharply rising state-owned enterprises and e-business enterprises. 

Since 2011, GLP, Goodman Group and other foreign-owned equipment warehousing enterprises all have large investment programs in China. In 2011, GLP newly invested warehouses with 2.66 million square meters. By the end of 2011, the total warehouse area of GLP in China reached 6.32 million square meters, including assets or stocks acquisition from developers of Beijing Airport City, Realty Vailog, Hangzhou Transfar, etc. 

Realty Vailog is the biggest industrial real estate developer in Italy. In 2011, it had 5 new programs completed just in the Yangtze River Delta (4 of them are located in Shanghai and 1 is in Kunshan), only second to GLP in number. In addition, programs of Realty Vailog in Beijing and Chengdu are planned to be completed in 2012. 

Beijing Wumart Group signs the strategy partner agreement with Singapore Mapletree Investments to establish a logistics park in Tianjin, backing the business expansion of Wumart Group to logistics spaces needed across China in the future several years. By Jun. 2012, Mapletree Investments totally have 5 logistics centers in China, scattered in Beijing, Tianjin, Yangshan and Wuxi.

In domestic warehousing enterprises, some regional enterprises begin to expand nationally; meanwhile, the former residential real estate enterprises start to invest in warehousing real estate. As the largest domestic warehousing real estate development enterprise, Blogis establishes logistics parks in Shanghai, Guangzhou, Tianjin, Kunshan, and other regions, forming a logistics equipment network covering primary coastal economic regions.

In 2011, the other highlighted spot of China’s warehousing industry was the acceleration construction of warehousing networks of e-business enterprises. Among e-business enterprises, makes the greatest investment in warehousing facilities. By the end of 2011, the total area of logistics centers operated in China of reached 400 thousand square meters. In Feb. 2012, Tianjin logistics center of with an area of 90 thousand square meters began to be used.

In 2011, China’s warehousing industry not only maintained the sound development momentum but also faced some difficulties and problems. For example, the heavy tax burden of warehousing enterprises was not solved. The new trial, collecting the value-added tax instead of the business tax, did not reduce tax revenue but aggravated the tax burden of asset-type warehousing enterprises and handling & carrying service enterprises. At the same time, the high price of purchasing warehousing land was an increasingly highlighted problem, causing the severe aftermath. The daily rent of stereoscopic warehouses per square meter in Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and other places was generally as high as over CNY 1.

Seen from the current situation of China, warehousing industry is over-dispersion. The proportion of internationalized standard warehousing is low and professional logistics enterprises only account for 10% in the logistics market. The majority of logistics enterprises are small parts limited in supply chain functions, hardly meeting the integrated service demand of customers. Seen from the development course of the logistics industry of developed countries, value-added services will take up a larger proportion in the using category of warehousing industry. For warehousing enterprises, the development space is wide.
