Thailand's logistics property market showed signs of a slowdown in its growth trajectory during the second half of 2023, with 3PL and e-commerce sectors scaling back to align their operations with demand outlooks. External factors such as the Red Sea conflict and other geopolitical tensions raise concerns for the global supply chain, and the magnitude of their impact on Thailand's logistics activities will likely be observed in 2024.
