Imagine a world where your groceries arrive at your front door, delivered by autonomous vehicle or drone without having made an order - your smart fridge has done all of this for you. It might seem like a strange concept, but this is just one of the ways innovations in technology are changing the landscape of the Industrial & Logistics sector.  

In this episode of Talking Property, James Jorgensen, State Director Industrial & Logistics in Victoria sits down with Christine Miller, CBRE’s Pacific Head of Supply Chain and special guest Michelle McNally, General Manager Group Property at Australia Post. Together, they unpack some of the ways the industry is embracing technology to create stronger, faster and more efficient supply chains in response to the rise in e-commerce, consumerism and changing buyer expectations and make their predictions on what the industry will look like in 2030.
