The last time I placed an online order, the products arrived on my doorstep in less than 18 hours. Five years ago, same-day or next-day delivery would have seemed incredible or even impossible. Now it’s expected.
To meet rising consumer expectations – delivery and otherwise – retailers need warehouses. And lots of them. There’s probably a fulfillment warehouse located near you right now.
As e-commerce continues to account for a greater share of total retail sales, the demand for warehouse space is increasing.
