Gerald Eve’s industrial research team has been presented with an award for ‘Best Supporting Role’ by the Industrial Agents Society (IAS) in recognition of the importance of the firm’s Prime Logistics research.
The accolade, which was announced at the 2013 IAS Awards ceremony on Thursday 26th October, acknowledges contributions that provide a vital service to the sector while demonstrating skill, commitment and professionalism.
Prime Logistics is the definitive guide to the UK’s distribution property market, analysing units of 50,000 sq ft and above to provide a detailed analysis of 26 distribution areas. The full report is produced biennially, with comprehensive update bulletins produced every quarter.

We’ve always viewed the research as central to our industrial property consultancy offer and this award, alongside the feedback from our clients, recognises the success of our approach.”
The judges’ citation said: “Gerald Eve is recognised for consistently supplying expert research within the industrial sector upon which a number of investors and developers rely. Their brand is recognised as a real stamp of quality by clients and agents.”
