Recently, Amazon announced they’d be pulling back on UK warehouse space after overextending during the pandemic. However, despite this setback, Midland Pallet Trucks are confident this won’t disrupt the robust industry.
Throughout the pandemic, Amazon snapped up a quarter of all UK warehouse space but, after claims they had demanded more space than needed, warehouse developers experienced a significant drop in value. However, according to manual handling experts, Midland Pallet Trucks, Amazon’s slowdown in warehouse space will create more room for smaller eCommerce businesses to grow their operations.
Midland Pallet Trucks, a leading supplier of hand pallet trucks, lift tables, and manual stacker trucks to warehouses across the country are champions of the small business and hope that with Amazon taking up less space across the country, new opportunities for up and coming businesses will present themselves – although these opportunities may come with rising rent prices.
Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Midland Pallet Trucks says, “A lot of people have been worrying what Amazon’s pullback signals for the warehousing industry, but at Midland Pallet Trucks we don’t think it’s as much of a cause for concern that some people believe.
We work with a large network of warehouse developers and managers who are still seeing high levels of demand thanks to the eCommerce boom. As more companies move production back to the UK, and online businesses grow, warehouse developers no longer need to rely on huge companies like Amazon to buy up their space.”
