    Writing: What's driving Asia's logistics properties or property?

    Hi teachers

    I've written the following headline and lead. Should I use "property" or "properties"? Are they grammatical and how can I improve it to make it easily understood?

    What’s driving Asia’s logistics properties (or property)?


    With e-commerce showing no sign of slowing, industrial real estate investment trusts (REITs) are well positioned to meet the growing demand for logistics space. This is particularly prominent in Asia where the secular tailwinds overwhelmed any trade-related headwinds last year.

    Cheers

    Holden

    Please explain what a logistics property is. Also logistics space.

    Logistics property refers to warehouses for logistics purposes... Thanks

    It sounds like you're talking about the logistics property market.

    I'm not sure how something can 'drive' warehouses.

    I had to google logistics property. Now I know a little more than I did before. I do not at this point feel qualified to explain it to anybody.

    Holden, you are writing for a specialized market. As such, I suggest that you familiarize yourself with the terms better.

    (The text seems okay, but I don't know what "secular tailwinds" are.)

    Consider using something like "the demand for" or "the high prices of" in your headline.

    How about a comma after Asia?
