Online sales mean more urban warehouses

E-commerce retailers, led by Amazon, are starting to open smaller, urban warehouses to keep pace with the demand for faster deliveries. According to a study by CBRE, companies will still have large warehouses far away from cities, but will also expand purchases of 200,000 sq. ft. spaces to stock items near urban centers, making overnight, and even hourly, deliveries possible. Amazon is leading the trend with 19 smaller warehouses in the United States, with plans for more. Story
