Demand for warehouse space in the UK has almost doubled in the past decade. To help you understand the significance of this, from 2007 to 2018 235 million sq. ft. has been leased or purchased. The equivalent of this is 3,000 Wembley stadiums. Ecommerce is responsible for this ongoing incline for need of warehouse space. Ecommerce has changed the buying procedure forever and input of warehousing is a crucial factor.
Ecommerce implemented a whole array of challenges for warehousing and logistics. Many retailers now only sell online because shopping in store is an outdated method, this in turn means all their stock is stored in warehouses. Retailers such as Amazon are an eminently successful example. Retailers like this lead the way for everyone else. Providing beyond expectation with things such as Sunday service and same day delivery.
But how can you make it possible to provide this level of service? For retailers to survive the pressure made by ecommerce there needs to be an investment in automation. People have high expectations when it comes to shopping. Warehousing and logistics are the support system for this. It’s the role of the retailer to make the online shopping experience as effortless as possible for the consumer, and due to the extreme levels of competition online. Retailers want to provide the most outstanding service with no comparison. 72.9% of online shoppers agreeing that they wouldn’t buy from a retailer if they had to pay for returns.
