Sustainable and Scalable Warehousing, Distribution or Manufacturing Workforces
How can moving warehousing, distribution and manufacturing operations closer to the city represent employment risks?
John Morris, SIOR, Industrial Services Lead for the Americas, Cushman & Wakefield, Inc.
Editors Picks:
Generally speaking, industrial labor that fits more optimally with productive performance in warehousing, distribution and manufacturing live in less urban, more rural, and less metropolitan communities. This does not mean that a facility performing these functions can not be successful in these communities; it simply means, due to the lower density of targeted higher-performing labor available, there is a greater likelihood of facing challenges with scaling and sustaining the labor force required.
