Demand for warehouses in the Czech Republic is breaking records. Developers are responding with extensive construction

Clients' interested in new industrial premises in the Czech Republic had very little to choose from last year. Thanks to record demand, which reached a record 2.39 million sq m in gross terms for the whole year, vacancy rates fell to 1.63%, a historic low.
