Philip Hawkins, president and CEO of DCT Industrial Trust, joined Nareit for a video interview at REITworld 2017.
DCT specializes in the ownership, development, acquisition, leasing and management of bulk-distribution and light-industrial properties.
Although Hawkins says it is difficult to quantify the impact of e-commerce on demand for industrial space, he estimates that it accounts for about a third of absorption in the DCT portfolio.
