Well-located, technologically-advanced distribution, warehouse, cold storage, and manufacturing facilities are being built at a rapid pace in key markets. Double-digit growth in e-commerce sales, a rise in business inventories, and the competition to deliver goods to end-users at an accelerated pace is driving this demand for space. Between 2013 and 2018, e-commerce deliveries tripled—which translated into companies seeking more space for distribution hubs that enable them to expedite deliveries to consumers. In addition, many manufacturers are consolidating outdated spaces in dispersed geographies, and building new state-of-the-art facilities to meet increased demand for their products. VHB’s integrated services team has been instrumental in identifying sites in key corridors, with rail and highway access, and has taken projects from permitting to design and construction to meet aggressive opening day schedules. We’ve also worked with our clients to add capacity at existing sites to meet growth and expansion plans.
