E-commerce firms second largest drivers of warehousing space – Feedback

E-commerce companies have become the second largest consumers of warehouses last year after third party logistics, said a new study.

The report by US based property consultancy CBRE also states that 2 million sq. ft. of warehousing space was taken up by e-commerce firms in 2015. “This is a significant jump as the share of the sector rose from a meager 2 per cent of the total warehousing demand in 2012, to around 22 per cent during 2015. On the same lines, office space demand from e-commerce firms witnessed a 170 per cent year-on-year growth-from 0.7 million sq. ft. in 2014 to 2 million sq. ft. in 2015,” CBRE said.
