A surge in e-commerce means that warehousing options that add supply chain flexibility are grabbing attention.
As the Covid-19 pandemic causes a surge in e-commerce orders and an unpredictable product demand for retailers, on-demand warehousing is gaining traction.
On-demand warehousing provides companies with temporary access to warehouse space where inventory is held and e-commerce orders are prepared. It may also include the delivery of these packages to their final destination. The size of the space rented is variable, and providers may house all sorts of items, ranging from online grocery baskets to mattresses.
