Ecommerce Surge Fuels Demand For Industrial Storage

The creation of new distribution centres to meet the increased demand for space by logistics operations continues to rise. However, experts are saying that despite this rapid new build programme, there will still not be enough storage space to meet future needs.

Fuelled by the explosive growth in ecommerce, for the second year running, they are warning that there is less than a years’ supply of warehousing that has not already been reserved, purchased, or leased.

If this proves to be the case, and the demand for industrial storage space does not slow down, companies will undoubtedly be looking for alternative industrial storage solutions.

Indeed, here at Merritts we have certainly seen a surge in enquiries from businesses wanting to store goods and reserve space for times when they need additional storage facilities.

With this in mind, we have also expanded our industrial storage capacity and now have several multi-functional sites from which we can offer over 100,000 ft² of secure internal warehouse industrial storage.

High ceilings, large access doors, and secure premises means we have the ability to store large, heavy, and high value machinery and equipment for our customers.
