ICREA’s specialist, experienced advisory team focusses on delivering value creation, creating & converting opportunities, growth, and overcoming challenges for E-commerce platform companies, hypermarkets, courier companies, large international logistic firms, and large multinational firms who need solutions to capture the growth and penetration through organic, inorganic growth in the growth corridors.
The growth drivers in the Industrial + Logistics sector are the existing low penetration level of the retail segment, the explosive growth of e-commerce retail, population growth, and growth of the middle-class segment. The challenges include investments and infrastructure constraints.
The gaps are wide and deep in ICREA's growth corridor countries of UAE, GCC, Middle East, Africa, and the Indian sub-continent. This gap and the imbalance of poor infrastructure in ICREA’s corridor of countries leads to the creation of opportunities for growth, investments, returns, partnerships, collaboration, alliances, and developments. It also provides an opportunity to make a positive social impact with self-sustainable modelled projects locally and internationally.
We follow a diagnostic, structured, and process-driven approach. We understand and define our client’s need, and provide research-based solutions for their problems. Our partners lead three levels of each process. We concentrate granularly on the education sectors. This approach guarantees that we delve deeper into the sector, making us niche providers of sharper and effective service with every passing day. Our creative, out of the box thinking helps us in our risk analysis strategy. We imbibe our core values and attitude of gratitude into every solution that we render.
In this sector, there are wide gaps across countries.
