The Growth of Warehouse and Distribution Centers
The National Emphasis Program reports that warehouse and distribution centers have grown considerably from 2011 to 2021. Even though we are much more aware of these facilities today with their growth, this really isn’t anything new. However, what is interesting is the number of worker growth in the area. Yes, of course, we do expect that with the growth of the warehouse and distribution centers, along with it comes workers, but the number a bit eye opening. As the growth started, the number of workers were approximately 668,900 and this number has been seasonally adjusted. By the end of 2021, there are over 1,713,900 workers, that’s more than double from where we started.
