Christmas demand is building, is your UK warehouse business protected?
With Christmas just around the corner and a significant move towards ordering online following the pandemic, the requirement to expand warehouses to dispatch stock as opposed to purchasing directly off the shelf in stores, is growing.
In a 2021 updated report ‘The size and makeup of the UK warehouse sector’, which was originally first published by UKWA in 2015, they determined that in recent years, demand for “warehouse space has risen to 566 million sqft” and is predicted to grow further as more and more high street stores move towards selling online.
What to consider when scaling up a UK warehouse business
Scaling up a business premises to accommodate more stock means accessing more space to store items, especially if businesses are looking to fulfil Christmas orders. For companies looking to increase warehouse space, considering other aspects such as, building security and safety, protecting extra employees, and securing stock whilst in transition, are equally important.
