Gone are the days of waiting; today's consumers expect their order to quickly appear in stores or on their doorsteps without much thought to how it got there.
Distribution centers make it happen behind the scenes. They depend on reliable supply chains and well-run ports to efficiently move goods, but unexpected challenges often surface, causing shipping delays and increasing costs.
Logistics companies need Class A warehouses close to highways and ports and a well-trained workforce to quickly move goods. Hiring can be challenging amid the tightest labor market in decades, making location more important than ever. Locating near an existing labor force and a growing consumer base lowers operating costs.
