Room to Grow: Warehouses Super-Size to Meet E-Commerce Demand
“Industrial real estate analysts say that in recent years, an increasing number of massive distribution centers have popped up in response to growing e-commerce.”
“The biggest facilities have doubled in the last ten years to top 1 million square feet in the U.S. and have grown to similar sizes in Europe and China.”
“Warehouses playing a role in e-commerce tend to employ one person per thousand square feet, or three times the number people it takes to power a traditional warehouse that ship in bulk."
“Over the last decade, the maximum height of new distribution centers has grown about 25% to a minimum of 36 or 40 feet.”
