For many distribution businesses, transportation costs are a greater expense than warehousing costs, with ratios approaching 3 to 1 for large and bulky products. This means proximity to your customers and modestly priced transportation lanes could outweigh ostensibly lower rent.
To achieve the right balance between logistics costs and location, you need expert assistance. Meet Jay Rohr, CRE, an industrial real estate marketer, advisor, developer, owner and analyst with over 35 years of commercial real estate and business experience and highly specialized expertise.
Jay has coordinated the construction or redevelopment of several million square feet of commercial properties and multiple commercial/industrial subdivisions and has served in an advisory capacity to some of Central Florida’s leading property owners while managing his own portfolio of industrial properties. He is a founder of Ferncreek Properties which dominated the commercial real estate market in the 1980's as Orlando's largest commercial brokerage and property management firm, eventually becoming the regional Trammell Crow affiliate. Jay also launched RERC, an economic and property advisory firm, which is now part of GAI Engineering’s Community Solutions based in Orlando.
Jay received the Counselor of Real Estate professional designation which recognizes his extensive knowledge of commercial real estate and contributions to that industry. In addition to his extensive commercial brokerage experience, he is an experienced problem solver with a broad based industrial real estate and business background. Based on his site development and commercial subdivision experience, MetroOne can assist you with your relocation and your site or subdivision development, either in an advisory capacity or as the project coordinator to include with rezoning, site design, and due diligence.
