Delivery dilemma: Americans are ordering more, but the U.S. can only handle so much
With the rise of e-commerce, Americans are demanding more deliveries. However, with declining warehouse availability, congested streets and limited curb access, the U.S.’s infrastructure may not be able to handle the increasing demand.
“In New York City, more than 1.5 million packages are delivered daily, and they bring along gridlock, safety concerns and pollution.”
“Though the U.S. has added around 1 billion square feet of warehouse space in the past six years, the vacancy rate is near a historic low and rent is still rising.”
Curb access has become a problem for delivery drivers in dense urban areas. There is often nowhere to park or find curb space, so they are forced to double park, which earns them parking tickets and increases congestion.
