Portrait of the Warehousing and Distribution Landscape in 2012
 
As this year is coming to an end, how have your operations emerged from the Great Recession? The 2012 Logistics Management survey has revealed major trends and offers a first-hand look into the state of today’s DC and warehouse operations: 
  • 52 percent of respondents are adopting a more cautious approach, spending less than $250,000 for warehousing equipment and technology in 2012.
  • 17 percent of respondents are spending $1 million or more in 2012, and another 16 percent are planning to spend that same amount in 2013.
  • About 60 percent of respondents are planning to expand.
  • 26 percent are increasing their number of SKUs.
  • 25 percent are increasing the number of employees.
  • To reduce operating costs, 64 percent of respondents are “improving warehouse processes” and 61 percent are “improving inventory control”.
