Warehousing & Storage

Warehousing & Storage

Brief Excerpt from Industry Overview Chapter:

Companies in this industry operate facilities to store goods and may provide related logistics services. Major companies include Americold, Burris Logistics, Iron Mountain, and Prologis (all based in the US), along with China's Global Logistics Properties and Switzerland's CEVA Logistics, Kuehne + Nagel, and Panalpina.


Demand for warehousing is driven by the flow of goods through the economy; other demand indicators include industrial production, import volume, and office vacancy rates. The rapid rise in online shopping in markets across the globe, along with expectations for faster and more secure delivery, is significantly increasing demand for warehouse space worldwide.


Major services include general warehousing (about 60% of industry revenue) and refrigerated warehousing (about 15%). Other services include records storage and farm products storage. Many operators provide contract warehousing services, in which a warehouse is dedicated to a single major customer. Others offer public warehousing services, in which warehouse facilities are shared by customers too small to require dedicated facilities.
