The emergence and rapid growth of e-retailing is one of the most significant structural changes experienced by the warehousing and distribution industry. While recognising that different markets have their own unique requirements and challenges, efficient and effective inventory management and supply chain strategies are critical to the success of customers in the e-retail sector.
As one of the largest global industrial property groups, Goodman has world-class expertise in managing and developing tailored logistics and warehousing solutions, which has given us a deep understanding of the unique requirements of this sector. This expertise and experience allow us to develop a distribution centre that meets all the needs of e-commerce.
Location selection, building design for clear heights, truck access, product flows and storage configurations are all important factors that influence how Goodman designs, delivers, and maintains our facilities. Goodman has an ongoing, collaborative relationship with key customers such as Amazon, providing a unique insight into the key drivers in the development of a functional distribution centre. Consequently, our knowledge and understanding of the sector is beneficial to help meet the needs of other e-retail customers.
