Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The General Warehousing and Cold Storage industry has performed solidly over the past five years. The development of vertically integrated supply chains in Australian transport industries has transformed warehousing and storage services. Warehouses are no longer just large, temperature-appropriate spaces to store stock. These facilities have developed to become complex distribution and information centres that provide linkages along a product's entire supply chain, facilitating just-in-time supply of stock. Manufacturers, retailers and wholesalers have adjusted their supply chains and now tend to hold less stock on hand, which boosts demand for warehousing and storage services.

Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The industry displays a medium level of capital intensity. In 2014-15, for every dollar spent as wages, an estimated $0.23 is invested in capital.

Some firms may incur operating leases rather than purchasing this equipment outright. Firms that purchase their own warehouses and storage facilities also have greater capital outlays compared with companies that rent these facilities.
