Commerce, trade, and consumerism in general have taken off in recent decades as the global population has boomed. With a higher number of people, there is naturally a higher demand for goods. Whether those goods are necessities like food, clothing, heating, or materials for shelter, or they they are luxuries and comforts that we have grown quite dependent on as a society, there is more production of goods now than our ancestors might have ever imagined would be possible.
And in the process of manufacturing, storage, and transportation, there needs to be a place for these goods to be kept before they reach their end goal of landing in the hands of waiting customers. This is where it is important for businesses to stay on top of determining warehouse space needs.
