Summary:
We compare the spatial logics of three logistics locations in the Paris region: parcel service terminals, distribution centers and inland ports. Using census of these locations and mapping our results, we have documented the diversity of logistics facilities. On the one hand, parcel service terminals and distribution centers are facilities dependant on the road accessibility and built by the corporate real estate market. On the other hand, inland ports are the outcomes of infrastructure policies and industrial practices. The diversity of logistics sites reveal the complexity involved in drawing up and implementing a logistics planning project on a metropolitan scale.
