E-Commerce Is Growing, and So Is Demand for Warehouse Labor

May 17, 2022

Some experts say e-commerce growth may slow down with the introduction of coronavirus vaccines that allow consumers to have a more personalized experience. But real estate companies expect the demand for e-commerce to continue to grow as a result of society’s changing habits, better technology and struggling brick-and-mortar locations.

Consumers feel their heart’s desire is just a click away, so it’s no surprise that real estate deals for e-commerce fulfilment centers are on the rise. And so the demand for labor to keep them running continuously has been increasing day by day.

Large warehouses never stock themselves. Even with warehouse automation, e-commerce fulfillment and distribution centers create a high demand for human workers to fill square footage and keep operations running smoothly.

According to the report, e-commerce trends are driving demand for warehousing space, as “e-commerce is more space intensive these days.” According to experts, keeping online fulfillment consistent requires three times more storage space than traditional retail, because the product variety is always greater, and parcel shipping requires more space than pallet shipping.
