On the logistics front, 2016 had record volumes. 2017 fulfilled its promise and outdid the previous year, overstepping the threshold of 4 million sqm taken up on the national user market, with unprecedented success in the leading area for consumption and operations. The Paris region alone represented nearly 40% of the take-up volume, a level that is both impressive and unusual. Moreover, the fringes of the region, with Oise and Somme in the lead, have also outperformed. The performance of the other backbone markets is aligned with the decade averages.
