Coronavirus And The Drive For Warehouse Space

The popularity of online retail has been driving an increase in the need for extra warehouse storage space for years but recently the drive for space has been supercharged by the Coronavirus pandemic.  Even before Covid hit, Brexit stockpiling in the UK had made the need for extra space important across many industries.  Online retail is expected to experience double digit growth for the next 5 years especially in the fast moving consumer goods space.  Warehouse and storage mezzanines can allow companies to maximise their existing footprint without having to source expensive additional units.  Since the start of 2020 online sales have increased by over 20% accelerating the shift away from traditional high street retail.  Logistics real estate was reportedly up 111% in 2020 compared to 2019.  Amazon and other large companies have been responsible for a large proportion of this growth but smaller companies are also starting to increase their footprint.  Here at Doity we are happy to give free consultations on how you can maximise the use of any space with our years of experience with mezzanine floors and warehouse platforms.  Knight Frank analysed the market and estimate that online retail could drive a need for 92 million square feet of storage space in warehouses over the next 3 years.
