In the news
Warehousing employment has grown more than 50% since 2015. In many U.S. towns and cities—particularly those where land is cheap and transit hubs are accessible—warehousing has now eclipsed other industries as the leading employer.
The coronavirus pandemic has only accelerated the growth of online shopping and the importance of warehousing and delivery workers. Frontline workers are serving an essential role, keeping shelves stocked and keeping Americans safe.
