As the capital of Sichuan Province, Chengdu is the nation’s southwest
centre of technology, commerce and finance, as well as the regional hub
of transportation and communication. The ‘West Development’ policy
has brought Chengdu onto the top of Sichuan’s list of agenda in terms of
overall competitiveness
Given the goal of improving Chengdu as the integrated transportation
hub for Greater China, a plan to develop the city’s modern logistics
infrastructure has been drafted upon the joint request of and by
the government of the municipality of Chengdu and that of Sichuan
Province. Dating back to 2005, Chengdu has already drafted its logistics
development plan. Based on this, Chengdu was designed to develop
multi-purpose transportation, pivoting on air freight and railway freight.
The bonded logistics network will develop city distribution and inter-city,
while expanding on short-distance transportation, depending on road
With accelerated execution of the plan, projects like ‘3 Parks and 4
Centres’ are currently heading into the completion phase. Chengdu
is becoming increasingly popular as the city of choice for logistics
and other industry related companies - for investing or locating their
regional distribution centres. The launch of ‘Chengdu Railway Container
Centre Station’ on 3 July this year, one of the key post-earthquake
reconstruction projects, has shifted the city’s logistics development up to
a new high.
Detail research and analysis to the city’s logistics infrastructure is a
significantly step for logistics companies looking into entering Chengdu
and western China market. To help investors and others understand
Chengdu’s rapidly growing logistics infrastructure, the Chengdu Logistics
Office and Jones Lang LaSalle have published ‘Post-earthquake
Chengdu Logistics Infrastructure Facilities Report’. We hope you find this
report as a useful guide to investing in Chengdu logistics market.

Chen Zhongwei
Chengdu Modern Logistics Office
First and foremost, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to
People’s Government of Chengdu Municipality for their appointment
of Jones Lang LaSalle to produce this report, special thanks must
go to Chengdu Logistics Association Office and Shanghai OrientCity
Investment Management Co Ltd for their support and collaboration on
this report.
Six months since the Wenchuan Earthquake, May 12th 2008, the
need to complete local restoration has propelled us to look deep into
the impact of Chengdu’s earthquake as well as the whole logistics
infrastructure across Sichuan. While conducting the study, many were
touched by the confident and positive-thinking displayed by Sichuan’s
people, despite all the lives the earthquake has claimed. Meanwhile,
the city’s determination and speedy execution of the logistics
development plan reaffirmed Chengdu as the centre for western China
logistics development.
Sincerely hope that the report is helpful to better understand and
develop in Chengdu’s logistics infrastructure market. Your participation
is highly appreciated!

Overview of the Research on Post Earthquake Logistics
Chengdu Warehousing Facilities
As verified by the China Earthquake Administration, an earthquake measuring
8.0 on the Richter scale hit Wenchuan County (31° north latitude/103.4° west
longitude) of Sichuan Province at 14:28:1’42 (local time) on 12 May 2008.
Tremors were felt across major cities in China such as Beijing, Shanghai and
Until 27 May, the result of a survey about the damage caused by the
earthquake, which 1,141 WFOEs (Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise) in
Chengdu joined (sampling rate: 84.02% of all operating companies), showed
that the total damage caused by Sichuan Earthquake has reached RMB
567.13 million. However, the WFOEs located in the areas other than the
quake-stricken ones, such as Du Jiang Yan and Peng Zhou, have only
suffered a moderate loss. Nine hundred and twenty two surveyed companies
(80.81% of the sample) have already resumed their operations. In Chengdu
Hi-tech Industrial Development Zone (CDHT), 157 of the total 159 companies
(98.74%) have resumed operations, among which, all of the 23 Fortune 500
corporations have been re-established. In Chengdu Economic and Technology
Development Zone (CDETDZ), 57 of the total 60 companies (95%) have also
restarted their production.
Undoubtedly, the earthquake will shed huge negative impact on the city’s
economy. This report will study the impact with emphasis laid on the current
and future logistics infrastructure map of Chengdu.
After the earthquake, Jones Lang LaSalle’s Chengdu office conducted a
research of logistics warehousing facilities clustering at the centre of Chengdu
as well as ‘the central ring’ of the city. The subject of the research includes the
current facilities of logistics warehousing developers and integrated logistics
services providers, and a focus is laid on public warehousing facilities as well
as BTS warehouses. Self-built, self-use and special warehousing facilities,
such as bonded logistics warehouses, warehouses for dangerous goods and
warehouses for freeze and cold storage, have been excluded.

Note: The city can be divided into three rings starting from the downtown core. The central ring refers to
Ring 2 between the very core of the city and the outer ring. Ring 1 includes Jinjiang District, Chenghua
District, Wuhou District, Qingyang District, Jinniu District and High-tech Industrial Zone. Ring 2 includes
Pi County, Wenjiang District, Shuangliu District, Long Quan Yi District and Xindu District. Ring 3 includes
Qing Bai Jiang District, Xinjin County, Pujiang County, Qionglai City, Dayi County, Chongzhou City and
Du Jiang Yan City.

     The Study of the Earthquake’s Impact on Chengdu Logistics
     Warehousing Facilities
     In compliance with the planning of Chengdu’s modern logistics market in
     2005, three international logistics hubs and four regional integrated logistics
     centres are to be established in Chengdu. Aside from these, logistics service
     stations are scheduled to be set up in selected areas such as shopping
     malls, specialised markets, where big manufacturers concentrate areas,
     industrial-dense zones and major transportation facilities, where an intensive
     development of logistics projects can be expected. Therefore, the research
     will be segmented according to the development timeline into ‘pre-2005’ and

     The pre-2005 logistics warehousing facility development zone refers to the
     centre of Chengdu, where most buildings followed the concrete-brick structure
     and were completed from the 1980s to the beginning of the 21st century. It
     has also been found that these facilities only suffered from small fissures on
     the ground after the earthquake, and no damage to either interior or exterior
     structure could be detected.

     The post-2005 logistics warehousing facilities adopted steel or pre-engineered
     steel as the main construction structure and were largely built within the period
     between 2005 and 2008. These facilities were zoned into the city’s planned
     areas of intensive logistics development, which were less affected by the

earthquake, since geographically speaking, these areas are not earthquake-
stricken ones. Some projects under construction were partially damaged,
which led to no other result than postponement.
The research result confirms that the impact brought by the earthquake on
Chengdu’s logistics infrastructure facilities is moderate, and there is a reason
to believe that a burst of supply of high-quality facilities that meet basic
technical standards will come out as the demand level goes up.

l   Blue points indicate areas where previously built facilities are concentrated.
l   Red points indicate areas where warehouses following modern technical standards are concentrated.

Since the hubs of ex-Sichuan roads are largely located in the north-east of
Chengdu where traditional road transportation stations and railway marshalling
stations are grouped, previously built logistics warehousing facilities have
made a dense presence in the Chenghua District and Jinniu District, the two
districts in the downtown core of Sanhuan Road.

     Upon the planning of Chengdu’s logistics market as well as the process of
     relocating road transportation stations and railways marshalling stations to
     Ring2 and Ring3, current logistics companies and the newcomers in the
     logistics market will swarm into the above areas with a full deployment of
     their capital to develop facilities. Except for the above areas, two national-
     level development zones (Chengdu Hi-tech Industrial Development Zone and
     Chengdu Economic and Technology Development Zone) will also be hot zones
     for these market players to develop their facility.

     Classification and Proportionate of Current Chengdu
     Logistics Warehousing Facilities:
     The subject of this part of the research is public general warehousing facilities,
     which are further divided into two types: those following basic standards of
     modern warehousing logistics facilities and those falling short.
     As Figure 3 shows, public general warehouses that follow basic technical
     standards in the Chengdu logistics market only cover 24% of the total facility
     area (870,000 sqm) or a total of 210,000 sqm. This means that the Chengdu
     logistics warehousing market is still on its embryo stage. With support from the
     government and efforts made by experienced international logistics developers
     and operators, the market will ensure a fast growth in the next one or two
     years, and the market coverage rate as well as demand will also witness a
     noticeable increase.

     Storage and Demand of Logistics Warehousing Facilities
     Figure 4 shows the storage and annual new supply of Chengdu logistics
     warehousing facilities from 2006 to 2011. The market saw a meager supply of
     logistics warehousing facilities from 2005 to 2008 reflected by a vacancy rate
     lower than 10% in 2008. The statistics of contracted projects of Chengdu’s
     logistics infrastructure show that the supply of logistics warehousing facilities
     will continue to soar in 2009 and 2010. This burst of supply includes the
     facilities that comply with basic technical standards. With the soaring supply,
     vacancy rate is expected to rise and be kept under 30% from 2009 to 2010,
     and will slump to 16.1% in 2011.
     In accordance with the city’s planning of intensive logistics development
     zones, those logistics warehousing facilities currently out of the zones planned
     for intensive logistics development will be grouped into the zones and those
     facilities falling short of the basic standards will be taken off from the market.
     Therefore, an obvious decline in the amount of low-quality warehouses will
     take place starting 2009.

Meanwhile, with a developing Chengdu economy, an expanding domestic
retail market and a bigger presence of internationally famous retailers and
manufacturers moving into Chengdu, the demand for high-quality logistics
warehousing facilities will sustain its increase. In addition, attention has been
paid to construction safety right after the earthquake, which also creates
demand for high-quality logistics warehousing facilities. A post-earthquake
interview conducted with tenants of low-quality facilities shows that 30%
of them will shift to high-quality facilities when their current term expires.
Moreover, about 60% of the city’s logistics warehousing facility tenants would
take anti-earthquake strength as the key factor when choosing a warehouse.
In conclusion, the two years between 2009 and 2011 will see a gradual and
speedy absorption of high-quality warehousing facilities that well meet the
basic technical standards.

Rental Trend of Logistics Warehousing Facilities
Figure 5 shows the trend of average rental rates and annual rental growth of
Chengdu’s logistics warehousing facilities that follow basic technical standards
during the period 2005–2011.
The city’s logistics warehousing facilities built before 2005 are commonly
poor in construction quality and property management service, which keeps

     rental levels low accordingly. With the continuously expanding supply of and
     improving management services of high-quality facilities, rentals of these types
     of facilities will rise in the next few years. However, high-quality facilities only
     account for a small portion of the city’s total supply, thus a steep rental growth
     is less possible.
     Upon the entry of many world-famous logistics facility developers into
     Chengdu’s logistics market in 2008, a bigger supply of high-quality facilities
     have been released, which has also gained the end-users’ recognition. Thus,
     it generated stronger demand of high-quality facilities that will gradually
     dominate the market.
     Rental is expected to soar in 2008 and 2009, whose growth rate is estimated
     to be 29%. As the market becomes mature, annual rental growth will be kept
     between 3% and 4% in 2009 and 2011

     Asset Performance of Logistics Warehousing Facilities
     Figure 6 tells the asset performance of Chengdu’s logistics warehousing
     facilities from 2005 to 2011. Since the market was on its embryo stage in 2005
     and 2006, facilities in the market did not enjoy a high value so the market
     rental was too low to be worth counting. The annual return on investment
     (ROI) will be 10.1% in 2008 and 9.25% in both 2009 and 2010.

Industry Segmentation of Logistics Warehousing Facility
Figure 7 shows the industry segmentation of end-users of public general
warehousing facilities, 90% of which comes from retail and the rest
respectively from bio-pharmaceuticals, vehicle and auto parts manufacturing,
and high-tech products. For example, bio-pharmaceuticals account for only 1%
of the total amount.

     A Shift in Functions: From Warehousing to Value-added
     The development of logistics brings more functions than simple warehousing
     to logistics. Consolidation, reverse logistics, value-added services,
     trans-shipment and industry operation will become rising popular functions.
     Figure 8 shows that warehousing is still the most important function of
     Figure 8. Current Warehousing Uses

     Chengdu’s logistics facilities, as it covers over 65% of the total market. Other
     functions, such as trans-shipment, value-added services, consolidation
     and reverse logistics, do not cover a large portion. However, as far as the
     three years’ planning is concerned, warehousing as a major function will be
     gradually replaced by other services adding higher values. Although traditional
     functions, including warehousing, will continue with their popularity and even
     expand, the strongest growth momentum comes from value-added services,
     trans-shipment and consolidation.
