The warehouse community is a community in every sense of the word, keeping the wheels of fulfilment turning, picking, packing, shipping, and stacking as a cohesive team, dedicated to ensuring the logistics and supply chain industry maintains its momentum and reputation.
From retail, to food, postage to manufacturing, customs to wholesalers; warehouses are an essential component in the way we live, work, make and buy in today’s society.
The warehouse industry is deeply rooted in our history, emerging from prehistoric civilisation out of a necessity for food storage, warehousing has since grown into an 8 trillion pound global industry.
Spanning a collective 2.1 billion square feet across the UK there are over 184,000 individual warehouses recorded in the UK land registry. There is no other industry that has grown from such humble beginnings to dominate an industry in quite the same way that the warehousing and supply chain industry has.
